Commemorative Air Force Museum, Mesa

4.8
The CAF was founded to acquire, restore and preserve in flying condition a complete collection of combat aircraft which were flown by all military services of the United States, and selected aircraft of other nations, for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations of Americans.

More than just a collection of airworthy warplanes from the past, the CAF's fleet of historic aircraft, known as the CAF Ghost Squadron, recreate, remind and reinforce the lessons learned from the defining moments in American military aviation history.

  • This is such an amazing museum! They have combined their passion for sharing history with their real-life military experience to provide both a historically accurate, yet visually appealing space for people of all ages to come and enjoy! The staff is amazing and I love that they are so informative. They definitely add more to the learning experience with their knowledge of the various planes and historical milestones of aviation. One of my favorite museums to visit in the state! They also host a Big Band 40's themed party every year to raise funds, which we were able to attend this year! It was so much fun and beyond amazing!!
  • Awesome place to go and see history! Plenty of parking and the docents who greet you when you enter the "hanger" are super friendly. The facility is very clean and well maintained. And you are able to go into the maintenance area to watch the people who keep these historical birds flying which is really neat. Plenty of opportunities to take pictures and learn about the history of these planes and pilots. Highly recommend going!
