Pima Air & Space Museum
It is said the Pima Air & Space Museum is where history takes flight. It’s one of the largest air and space museums in the world and the largest non-government funded aviation museum. Visitors can view more than 300 aircraft and spacecraft including many of the most historically significant and technically advanced craft ever produced, both from the United States and throughout the world.
Here visitors will walk among the giants of military, commercial and civil aviation heritage. Among them are a B-29 Superfortress, the SR-71 Blackbird and a rare World War II German V-1 “buzz bomb.”
The collection includes President John F. Kennedy’s Air Force One and presidential aircraft used by Presidents Nixon and Johnson. The Museum consists of five large hangars (more than 177,000 feet of exhibit space). Plus, the 390th Bombardment Group (Heavy) Memorial Museum is located on Museum grounds. Pima Air & Space Museum maintains its own aircraft restoration center and offers exclusive tours of the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG), also known as the “Boneyard,” located across the street at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.
And it’s all located less than ten miles from Lodge on the Desert; only 16 minutes away!
