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!

Very good selection of planes, helicopters, weapons and assorted gear on display in the assorted hangers. They even have a hanger for space including a model used in the filming of Apollo 11. But it's the planes outside that brought it alive for me. A very friendly and knowledgeable staff to assist.

I took my teen sons on this tour. I bet we were the only ones in the whole place. The tour was basically a self guided tour reading whatever signs were still standing in front of the aircraft. It was hot and we basically walked from one airplane's shade to the next. Not a comfortable tour. The displays inside the... More

I spent 38 years in and around aviation so this was a great way to see the history all in one place. About half of the museum is inside while the rest is outside. So if you are planning a summer visit you want to do the outside as early as possible. Now it says Air and Space but the... More

I went here because my boyfriend wanted to see this so badly. Well, I enjoyed this experience almost as much as he did. Our docent, Judge Tom Collins, was incredible. I don't know how he kept so much information in one brain. The planes and history were riveting and the layout was well done and quite organized. The planes in... More

Spent the day touring the exhibits. Went on the "boneyard" tour. This place is so full of history. Makes me so proud of our service people.

I had 3 hours left in my trip to Tucson so this was my last thing I saw. I arrived at 1:30 and paid extra $7 for the boneyard tour starting at 3:30. I had about 1.5 hours to see the hanger and outside airplanes. I saw the exhibits in the hanger at the entrance and made a quick tour... More

There is a huge selection of planes to view, and many are meticulously restored and inside. I highly recommend the tram tour as you'll hear a docent give a lot of great information.
