Overview
More
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 took our teenaged daughters whom are homeschooled. This couldn’t have offered a better history lesson for them. The personal time spent by the staff on site provided incredible insight into what life was like on the bombers.

With an extensive display of retired aircraft, the casual observer strolling around the museum will find much of interest, from the curious (world's smallest aeroplane to actually fly) to the awesome (spy plane) to the historical (German, Japanese, British & American WWII planes). While planes...More

Pains extra for tram tour of area that goes around discussing many of the planes parked there. Several buildings with more planes to see to include the main entrance building. Walking is necessary but ADA is there also Will be back to see more
