The Pima Air & Space Museum, located in Tucson, Arizona, is one of the world's largest non government funded aerospace museums.


The museum features a display of nearly 300 aircraft spread out over 80 acres, (320,000 m²), on a campus occupying 127 acres, (610,000 m²). It has also been the home to the Arizona Aviation Hall of Fame since 1991.





A large number of the museum's aircraft are displayed outside with the remainder located in one of the museum's four display hangars. In addition to the display hangars, the museum has a restoration hangar.










Opened to the public in May 1976 with 48 aircraft then on display, the museum's main hangar houses an SR-71A Blackbird, an A-10 Warthog, a United States Air Force Through the Years exhibit, and a mock-up of a control tower.
