Description

Phoenix New Times' Description

Located in Tucson, the Pima Air and Space Museum houses a collection of more than 300 air and space crafts. It's one of the largest air and space museums in the world and the largest non-government funded aviation museum. Many of the crafts on display carry historical and technological significance and the museum is also the official tour operator of the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group, or as we call it, the “Boneyard.” Tram tours of the 80-acre museum last about an hour and fifteen minutes and are narrated by docents who can even share personal experiences of their time in the service with the aircraft on display. Fifty-minute walking tours are also available and are free with admission. With nearly a dozen different exhibits, there's plenty to experience and popular spots include the Douglas B-23 Dragon, Boeing B-29 Superfortress, Convair B-36J Peacemaker and Air Force One Douglas VC-118A Liftmaster.

    Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. You can also see some of the 4,000 military and civilian aircraft by driving along the fence on Kolb Road by the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.

    Check out the SR-71!

    PASM is so cool! Definitely take the AMARG tour. Call ahead to make sure there's room! Go early in the summer.

    Day trip, interesting if you like that kinda thing....I liked it and I am not really into air and space stuff, affordable. There is a shuttle ($7-$9) that will ride you around the "bone Yard"

    Did you know? The museum’s collection of 300 aircraft and 125,000 artifacts is second in size and diversity only to the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.
