    Lot's of aircrafts and a great outside tram tour! (Especially because it's bloody hot!) People are very nice and mostly everybody was a pilot so they have lots of information!

    What a neat spot to see planes of every shape, and size, and to get some history lessons at the same time. My favorite part was the tram tour, and our War Veteran driver/guide.

    The volunteers and guides here are amazing. Take advantage of their in-depth knowledge and ask them about the aircraft. And take the tram to hear even more!

    Lots of walking indoors and out, so be sure you have comfortable shoes. Don't forget to look up!

    Wow!! Been roadtripping for 5 months, and this is a top 5 highlight. Better than the Smithsonian air & space museums

    The aircraft exhibits at Pima Air & Space Museum are wonderful, but it’s the bone-yard next door with 4,400 abandoned jets that will make your jaw drop. Tours are first come, first served.

    The museum itself is pretty good, but the star attraction here is over the road - driving around the plane graveyard where aircraft are stored in the desert to preserve their parts.

    Day trip, interesting if you like that kinda thing....I liked it and I am not really into air and space stuff, affordable. There is a shuttle ($7-$9) that will ride you around the "bone Yard"

    The Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson, AZ is one of the largest air and space museums in the world, and is the largest non-government funded aviation museum.

    Take one of the guided walking tours - many of the guides are ex-fighter pilots and such! They know & love what they're talking about.

    Blackbird is incredible to see up close - and right in the main hangar if you don't have a lot of time

    If you ever get a chance to visit Tucson this is a must see. It's the second largest air and space museum only to the Smithsonian.

    Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. You can also see some of the 4,000 military and civilian aircraft by driving along the fence on Kolb Road by the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.

    Did you know? The museum’s collection of 300 aircraft and 125,000 artifacts is second in size and diversity only to the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. Read more

    Huge museum with 5 big buldings and 300+aircrafts. Very interesting. It takes 3+ hours to view.

    I'm not particularly into planes or WWII memorabilia, but I enjoyed it here nonetheless. Worth a look if you're in the area.

    This museum is an ideal location to take a bus tour to see the operations and retired planes near an Air Force Base for $7! Read more to find out about other fascinating venues for airport museums. Read more

    Wear comfortable shoes. There is so much fun stuff to see but you will need to do a fair amount of walking unless you take the tour tram. Read more

    You got to be really into planes and military history. It’s interesting for a bit but a lot to take in.

    This place is pretty cool. You get to see all the old bombers and some newer ones that have been designated for the graveyard.

    With over 300 aircrafts, you don’t want to miss out on the Lockheed SR-71 A Blackbird in Hangar 1 South … this is the only aircraft to exceed Mach 3!

    It's in Arizona and the buildings are NOT air conditioned. Pales in comparison to the Air Force museum in Dayton.

    The food is above average compared to other restaurants. A complete meal averages $10, also allows a wide view of the museum's aircraft yard.

    Impressive collection, including Air Force and Marine presidential transports (Yup, JFK's plane is there too). Obviously, most of the collection is outside. Check the weather, come prepared.
