My 10-year Daughter and I visited the end of March 2016 for Spring Break and absolutely loved it! Although admittedly I was probably more excited than she was. We did the tram tour of all the planes/helicopters outside. The tram operator was very knowledgeable and gave a lot of fun facts about each vehicle. We also visited the Space building which was a lot of fun and very interesting. I would have loved to stay there longer and do the Boneyard tour but my Daughter was done after about 4 hours. I could have stayed there all day!

Wow! Just ... wow. We drove down from Phoenix for the day thinking we'd go through the museum, snap some pictures, and head back to Phoenix for dinner. The website doesn't do justice to the sheer amount of information and exhibits this place has to offer. We spent the whole day here and only made it through two of the buildings and sprinted through the outdoor displays to make sure we got photos next to certain aircraft (Air Force One, Super Guppy, etc.). We could have spent a solid three days here and possibly still not seen everything. The folks that maintain this museum and who work there do a spectacular job. And nearly every single staff person or volunteer I encountered shared some amazing fact or interesting bit of trivia about the aircraft I was looking at. There is obviously a lot of love and care that goes into maintaining the collection here and the people who work there have a very personal and vested interest in the aircraft. Very well done. We hope to be back some day and see the rest of the museum.

Amazing, very complete resource with many specialist items and knowledgeable staff on site. Only tour operator for the nearby "boneyard," another significant point of interest. Reasonable prices. Free parking. Bring comfortable shoes, water, and sun protection in sunny weather. There were a lot or aircraft in the boneyard, but I wasn't able to see any MC-130 fitted with Fulton system recovery units and painted with the distinctive "Blackbird" colors (no, not speaking of the SR-71) used by the Stray Goose crews. Docents weren't aware of the aircraft or the project. Too bad.

The Pima Air and Space Museum is big, huge, ginormous and a bit more. This is listed as the 3rd largest Air museum in the US and is so worth a day or at least a half a day! Any less and you might just plan to come in and see one hanger per trip. The quality and breadth of the collection is incredible. The labor of love by the staff of volunteers is truly amazing. For any fan of military aircraft the place is way up on the list. For any military historians, the docents have more stories than there are hours in the day. The Tram Tour will yield insights into history, model differentials, and quirks of history that would make a researcher drool. Presidential jets, and elite prop jobs, transports of many kinds, fighters from the US and Russia, choppers of all styles, and so much more I could not even take in all of the hangers. Clear, spacious, planes on the ground, on the floor, hanging from the ceiling, and in model form too! I will be returning again, and hope to soak up a bit more of this luscious part of our history. Take the tram Tour for Sure!
