Be amazed at one of the world's largest aircraft collections: including 2+ hangars of World War II planes, supersonic spyplanes, the world's smallest bi-plane, plus many other unique private, military and commercial air & spacecraft documenting the evolution of flight. Friendly docents augment your visit. Only Pima Air & Space offers the bus tour of the "Boneyard"/AMARG (M-F only, no holidays) plus offers its own tram tour of the museum's 80 acres of one-of-a kind planes daily (additional fees). You can actually touch "aviation history" including "Freedom One" (that flew the American 444-days-in-Iran hostages home), presidential crafts, planes that launched astronauts, delivered life-saving food/fuel, etc. and others with wingspans the length of a football field... Ogle helicopters, MiGs, an Oscar, a rare German buzz bomb, a moon rock and much more. 300 aircraft, 80 acres, 5 indoor air-cooled hangars. Just plane awesome!

Great aviation history all in one place

As the title suggests, I don't know of a better place to see so much in aviation history. But you better have a good pair of walking shoes on, unless you book the tram tour. The... read more

As the title suggests, I don't know of a better place to see so much in aviation history. But you better have a good pair of walking shoes on, unless you book the tram tour. The property is HUGE, there's so many helicopters and airplanes!!! My son and wife (neither big on aviation history) loved it. They could not imagine... More

Took friends from NY here because of former Air Force Service. We could have spent the whole day there, so much to see and history to read about.

I've been to Pima air and Space Muesuem many times over the years of traveling to Arizona. I've watched the museum grow since the 1990s and it keeps getting better and better as the years go by. There is so much to see and the aircraft on display an really very well maintained and cleaned. It never gets old going... More

We only had 2 hours to explore the museum which wasn't nearly enough time to see this amazing collection of aircraft. Will definitely visit again on a future trip to Tucson.

I took the 1-hour tram tour and we saw an overwhelming amount of aircraft's. The tram tour was narrated by the driver who has extensive knowledge. I would recommend the tram tour if you want to see all the aircraft's on the outside part of the museum. Unfortunately, the Boneyard was closed when I was there so hopefully I can... More

Air and space museum in Tucson best visited October thru April. (Summer months are too hot to fully enjoy the outside exhibits) Also part of the museum is a former Minuteman Missle Silo with guided tours. The silo is located in Green Valley, about thirty miles from the Pima Air Museum. Both a must see for aviation and aerospace enthusiasts.... More

This museum rapidly improves. This museum can and probably will take most of a day. Especially if you opt for the bus ride through the Bone Yard at Davis-Mothan (which is a MUST). I can't tell you how much fun we had. About half you visit will be outdoors, so dress accordingly. There is something here for anyone that has... More

The museum in itself is exceptional in the range of planes on display but get to visit the airbase and see those 4000 planes

My husband is a private pilot and an airplane owner and enthusiast, so we visit lots of air museums. Pima Air and Space Museums is one of the largest and most complete in the US. We were able to visit the newest hanger where we enjoyed a beautiful float plane, a Catalina. Impressive to say the least.
