Overview

Be amazed at one of the world's largest aircraft collections: including 3 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, 10-day Advanced Reservations Required) 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. 350 aircraft, 80 acres, 6 indoor air-cooled hangars. Just plane awesome!

We also went to the Air Force Museum in Dayton on this trip and both provided more aircraft and information than could be absorbed on one day. We will gladly send both again

Well, all day may be a bit of a stretch but you better make time for a half day at least. So much aviation history to see. There is a ton of exhibits inside the buildings as well as a small cafe and gift shop....More

If you love airplanes then you will have a lot to read and photos to take. Just be sure not to go on a windy day as it can be very dusty. .

This was a lot of fun. I know nothing about planes but found it informative and interesting. The tram tour was great. Time went by quickly.

Interesting museum with literally hundreds of planes from all around the world, WWII aircraft (and earlier) all the way through a Boeing 787-8 from just a few years ago. I recommend the tram tour. Our driver/guide was extremely knowledgeable, speaking to details for 100+ airplanes....More

Great planes and displays, along with photographs and volunteers to assist you and answer your questions about the planes. Great exhibits.

Almost every plane you can think of on display. Worth the admission price, a lot of walking though. Volunteers are very friendly and have great stories'

I was pretty amazed to see Blackbird in it's full beauty sitting in the hangar. This museum shows you very much of a modern history of airplanes. The one which i was very surprised to see was Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner parked outside. I missed F-16...More

There are a lot of planes outside but they also have large hangars with great planes displayed in them, so you can be out of the sun. They do allow you to bring in bottled water. You can walk outside for awhile and then go... More

Answers are good. If you have limited time, I would suggest skipping the boneyard tour. The tram tour of the outdoor museum exhibits is outstanding.
