Pima Air & Space Museum Pima Air & Space Museum
Opened in 1976 the private and non-profit Pima Air & Space Museum is very impressive, covering 80 acres it has over 250 aircraft on display, making it the 4th largest aviation museum in the United States.
It is situated on the perimeter of Davis-Monthan AFB and the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG), the largest aircraft storage and preservation facility in the world. Many of the museum's exhibits ended their service with a period of storage at AMARG to be saved from scrapping by towing directly from the base across the road and into the museum. Four or five hangars house many of the most valued exhibits and enable very important restoration of aircraft to be done on site.
