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!

I wasn't excited about going here, but I really, really enjoyed it. I like old cars, and now I like the old planes too. Great group of employees that love what they do. Amazing collections, incredible stories, very informative, and very well laid out.

A must see and do! One of the best Museums for aircraft and Aviation History. Get there early to see all in buildings and take the tour!

If you have even a mild interest in airplanes this is the place to be !!! take the tour and then see the hangars. There is so much history here to see.

If you like planes, come here. Worth it. 1 or 2 hrs is enough time, unless you take the trip to the bone yard...then, it's longer.

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.
