  • Love this museum! With 5 air conditioned hangers and the outside display. The docents are very knowledgeable and have stories of their own to tell. The aircraft are in wonderful condition, they restore the aircraft on site. If you love aviation and space travel too then you must plan a visit!
  • Have wanted to visit the Pima Air & Space Museum for a long time and I am so glad I finally did. It is a fantastic place with so much history inside the hangers and on the grounds it is for an aviation geek like me and my friend who traveled with me or anyone who wants to see and learn of the history of not only military but commercial aviation an incredible place to do it. The vast collection of planes and helicopters on display along with history of aviation that you can walk around and photograph and learn from is just such a treat you will not regret your time here. Come and enjoy some of the history of aviation in America.
