Pima Air & Space Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • I liked it. A huge variety of different types of cool planes. My favorite was the Black Bird SR71A, which is in the middle of the entrance building, I also liked the B17 gallery, it was really cool. If you want to come here, which I definitely recommend, keep in mind that most planes are outside and the sun is out in the afternoon so it's a bit hot. Expect that, everything was excellent.

  • This is an amazing museum! It is huge with so much to see both indoors and outdoors. You could definitely spend an entire day here. We saw so many different types of aircraft and took many great photos! Unfortunately, my family arrived just a couple of hours before closing, on a hot summer afternoon, so we didn't have time to take it all in fully. If you go in the summer, I suggest getting there early and bringing lots of water.

  • Wow! So many planes and so much history! If you like planes/aviation/history this is an amazing place. Lots of it is outdoors but there are several buildings to go into to cool off. Remember to hydrate and bring your real camera! I have visited twice and am ready to go back again.

  • If you are a Military Aircraft Geek, or just have a General Curiosity about The History of Flight, this is the Place for You! Excellent Collection, Friendly and Helpful Staff, and Reasonably Priced. Great way to spend some leisure time. Be sure to get there early if you would like to take the tram tour of the outdoor area. It does get pretty hot during the day. Tram tours end about 1 p.m. in the Summer.

  • Great museum. A lot of interesting planes that are well marked. The docents were very friendly and had lots of fun facts to share. On Thursday at the 390th museum on the grounds, a pilot of the B-17 on display works and was great to talk to. I would highly recommend visiting.
