Pima Air & Space Museum, Tucson Reviews

  • The best Air and space museum in the world!! If you're here you HAVE TO GET THE TRAM TOUR if you don't you will be walking for many miles in the sun. Bring sunscreen and sunglasses! The tram tour gives you info on all of the planes on site and is well worthwhile. I recommend trying to land on the moon in the space hangar! So much to see you that you will miss a few things so I recommend spending the whole day here if you have the time.

  • Don't miss this. So many things to see and lots of interesting info from volunteers there. Forget sports or entertainment figures...if you show up on a Thursday you can meet a true American hero at the B-17 building. WWII pilot who flew 28 missions over Germany will relate his experiences and answer any questions you may have. Highly recommend going here.

  • The collection of airplanes here is very impressive. We spent an afternoon walking around and could go back and spend more time because there is so much to see. Particularly impressive to me was the larger planes outside, the SR71 the presidential planes, and the world war two era bombers (b17, b24, and b29). The bombers are great because they have the bomb bay doors and other hatches open and you can stick your head inside and look around. Most of the planes are accessible enough for you to walk around and under. Great spot for fans of military history, aviation, and airplanes.

  • What an amazing museum. This is one if the finest collections of American military aircraft you'll ever see. And they have some rare aircraft as well. We spent several hours here but I really think you should budget half a day if you really want to see it. My favorite aircraft were the SR-71 Blackbird, B-58 Hustler, and B-36 Peacekeeper. One disappointment was the hangar containing the SR-71 Blackbird and D-21. They're somewhat naturally lit which meant we had poor lighting on the partly cloudy day we visited. Also, the aircraft is on stands and you can't see the top. One of the newer hangars has a balcony to see the planes from a higher vantage. The B-17 exhibit is one of the best I've ever seen. Worth every penny.

  • Went to the Museum in Feb 2018. The area is very clean and the grounds are well maintained. The parking lot is covered. The museum and the exhibits are well layed out. There are plenty of volunteers to answer questions. They also offer guided tours. I would also highly recommend taking the tram tour. You are driven around the outside exhibits with a guide. However, the restaurant on site is a little over priced. This is a must if you or a family member is a veteran or if you are interested in war planes and military history.
