Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: 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've been able to visit a few time with our out of town guests and am never disappointed. Wonderful experience for flying enthusiasts.

My husband went to the museum while I went shopping at the gem shows. He thought it was great and went back for another tour 2 days later.
If you like planes, you can't miss this

The Pima Air and Space Museum is one of the largest privately owned air museums in the world. They are open every day except for Thanksgiving and Christmas. There are many, many aircraft to look at, including a former Air Force One from the Kennedy era as well as Korean war and Vietnam war era planes. There are also many interesting exhibits inside hangars and a WWII barracks. You could easily spend a whole day here if you are an aviation buff. Even if you are not an aviation buff, it is still a very interesting museum and worth a visit. You can also arrange for a visit to the "Boneyard" which is located nearby at Davis- Monthan Air Force Base. Parking is free. They do have a snack bar/restaurant but we didn't go to it. If it is hot outside, make sure that you bring bottled water and a hat.
