If I could rate this 10 stars, I would. Not only will you see new military aircraft, but be sure and take the trip to the "bone yard" where you'll see aircraft dating back to World War I. You'll wonder how some of those huge planes made it off the ground!

Amazing collection of air crafts! They have a few different covered hangers with beautiful restored and preserved crafts. There is also a large out doors walking area where you can take a tram around. But I thought was the coolest was the boneyard! Great for all ages.

You will enjoy the largest collection of aircraft in the nation! A perfect day trip to Tucson (just 1.5 hrs travel). Be prepared to spend the whole day - there is so much to see!!

Possibly the worlds largest collection of military and civilian aircraft anywhere. This museum is one not to be missed by anyone with any interest in aviation or military aircraft.

Pima Air & Space Museum is a large place for displays of aircraft to be able to see and learn about the history of aircraft. Disability access is limited some areas due to gravel and dirt pathways. Disability parking was provided. You will need about 2 to 4 hours to visited the site.

We enjoyed this museum tremendously. It has a lot of early and modern type planes and also Air Force One. I have seen both this one and another one when I was in the Smith. Museum in Washington DC. This one at Pima Air the visitors get to tour inside.

Cool place where you can't help but marvel at the broad collection of planes , helicopters, space memorabilia and info. Much is military related but there are some commercial planes too. The Boeing B 52d stratofortress is huge! I liked the vomit comet too...

This place was great!! You can go up to all the planes and touch them. It was awesome. There were also some fun simulators. I would definitely recommend a trip here.

If you have any interest in old military aircraft, you need to visit this museum. (And even if you're not interested in old aircraft, you'll still probably find something to love about this place!)

Inside several huge hangars and outside under the desert sky, there are an incredible number of aircraft. Most are from World War II, but there are planes the early days of aviation all the way up to more recent jets. Go!
