Pima Air & Space Museum, Tucson Reviews - Write a Review
This is an amazing place to visit. Fantastic displays of a huge number and variety of aircraft, some in hangers, many in the open air. Don't miss the tram tour! Our guide yesterday was brilliant, so knowledgeable and informative. But, the space centre is a real disappointment. It is not logically laid out; there is too much written information much of which cannot be read because of poor lighting; and several of the the interactive displays were not working. My suggestion for the museum is to close the space centre until it can be drastically improved and much better laid out. All the aircraft displays are brilliant, the space centre is not. By the way, for visitors from the UK, like me, don't miss the recently installed Spitfire!
This is a great place to spend a few hours. They have a wide variety of planes, helicopters, jets, space crafts etc to look at. There are multiple hangers and a large display out side. My only complaint would be that I wish they were set up to go in a few more of them. Even taking off a door and covering the entrance with plexiglass so you could see inside we be a welcomed improvement.
For someone who isn't entirely enthralled by planes it was pretty interesting. My boyfriend loved it though so that's what mattered! AND they are dog friendly! We took a tour of the first hanger (free) as well as the tram tour for $6 and both were well worth it but pretty long.
If you love aviation you will find heaven here. The museum is amazing. The nearby graveyard is beyond words. I didn't think I could come out of it a different person. Go with anyone who knows back story on planes as I did and you will find it life transforming. Gosh I want to fly some of these babies!
What a great experience!! I went there with my parents and took my 2 year old daughter who loves airplanes. They have an amazing collection of planes, helicopters, and other aviation related items. The staff that works in the hangars are very knowledgeable and are great to talk to, one was even nice enough to give my daughter a toy airplane! Everything was very clean and well maintained, including the bathrooms. I did appreciate the fact they provide changing tables in the male bathrooms. The food at the restaurant is pretty good, albeit a little pricey. We had burgers and chicken strips, and unless you're a huge eater, split a fry order, it's a huge basket. I do plan on going back and taking the family again, especially to get the tour of the boneyard.
