The Pima Air & Space Museum is one of the world's largest privately funded aerospace museums. With nearly 300 aircraft spread out over 80 acres of it's 127 acre campus, this museum has been the home to the Arizona Aviation Hall of Fame since 1991.

Located just minutes from the world famous 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group "Boneyard" in Tucson, Arizona, the Pima Air & Space Museum is a "do not miss" for aviation enthusiasts and historians. Take a tour through WWII's Pacific Theater by looking at the museum's PBY Catalina or go high tech by standing next to one of the few remaining SR-71A Blackbirds, originally designed by the CIA for covert surveillance ops.

The concept for the Pima Air & Space Museum began in 1966 during the celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the creation of the United States Air Force. Early commanders of Davis-Monthan Air Force Base and the Military Aircraft Storage and Disposition Center (MASDC) the forerunner to today’s 309th Aircraft Maintenance and Regeneration Group (309 AMARG) recognized that the historic World War II and 1950s era aircraft stored on the base were rapidly disappearing into smelters and that the flames were consuming not just metal, but the aviation heritage of the country. On their own initiative, base officials began to set aside examples of the many types of aircraft stored in MASDC’s yards. These planes were placed along the base’s fence line so that the public could see them through the fence. The display quickly became very popular with the local community and the Pima Air & Space Museum was born!
