Pima Air & Space Museum, Tucson Reviews

  • This place is absolutely fantastic for any historian and certainly for anyone passionate about airplanes and flight. One of the largest and most diverse collection of aircraft in the country, I'd say moreso than Wright-Patterson. 5 hangars full of well preserved aircraft and memorabilia from all eras of flight plus another 80 acres of aircraft organized in a well thought manner to showcase rotor craft, sensing/radar, bomber, cargo, airline, etc... and of course a plethora of fighters, US and foreign. Put on your walking shoes and bring water, it'll be several hours just to walk the entirety of the hangars and grounds. There's also trolley tours of the aircraft graveyard on base, weekdays only. I'll have to come back for that. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, don't hesitate to ask questions.

  • Wow. One of the best museums I've ever been to, if not the best. We were in the Tucson area trying to figure out what to do and the reviews here were so positive it was an easy decision. When you're driving up, you see all the planes lined up outside and it makes you so excited to go in. All the volunteers are extremely friendly and eager to share their knowledge. Unfortunately we didn't have as much time as we'd like but I plan to go back and spend a few hours. You just get lost in the history and it's certainly not every day you get to be up close and personal with Air Force One or an SR-71 Blackbird.

  • This is definitely one of the best air museums in the country. They have just about everything of interest, even a shuttle srb to boot. The state of preservation is generally excellent as well. It has become a must see every time I am in the area. If you are lucky, you can see A-10s flying nearby as well.

  • We had one day in Tucsun, We were going to visit the national park but due to bad weather we decided in the air & space museum. So glad we did! The planes are amazing and so is the staff. So much to see it will take at least two days to see it all. There are so many awesome planes, helicopters, tanks, etc l. Everyone will enjoy something in this museum. A must see!

  • One of the best aviation museums in the country. This was the 3rd time I've visited and it's better every time. I would suggest trying to see the outside exhibits early before it gets hot or schedule your visit for a temperate time of year.
