    This is worth the $15 to get in. Examples of any plane you can think of? Check! Top gun plane? Yep! I don't necessarily have a special interest in airplanes, but this was worth the visit!

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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"

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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

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

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

    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!

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

    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.

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

    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.
