Pima Air and Space Museum Reviews
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.
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.
