“Great Museum”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

Really had a Great time June 11th when 4 of us rode up from Prescott. I'm embarrassed to say that it took me 20 years to get up to the museum but suffice to say it will be a MUCH shorter length of time that passes before we return. Looking forward to a return trip to see the Tuskegee Airman in Aug of this year. Shelly was VERY helpful and a real treat to talk with, the tour of the Constellation was well worth the price even though it was a tad warm inside the plane. Some pretty cool items for sale in the gift shop as my debit card can attest to.....

“Awesome Little Place”
Reviewed 11 June 2013 via mobile

Stopped here on our way to the Grand Canyon. We didn't even have it planned but I'm glad we did because it was a great place to visit! The lady was very attentive and helpful! Took lots of pics of very nice airplanes!

“Great experience...a must stop for aviation enthusiasts”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

The museum was a terrific surprise as we vacationed around the Grand Canyon area of Arizona. The "Connie" outside is the tip of the ice burg as you step in the lobby with a beautiful Pitts special over head. After signing the guest book and enjoying the friendly staff you move into the main area where an impressive array of aircraft are arraigned in an easy, short walk. A rare ME109 and a huge Skyraider are among the collection. Many artifacts are spread throughout displayed with taste and accuracy. Next time we're in the area I plan to make another visit!

“A "must see" aviation museum!”
Reviewed 26 May 2013

How fortunate for us there was a brochure promoting this museum at the Arizona Welcome Center! My husband was very impressed with the number and variety of planes on display, historical artifacts and the layout of the museum. Even though I'm not a real "buff" - the various items on display including those of a B17 which my father flew]captured my interest! The staff was more than knowledgeable and so willing to share the wealth of information they knew about the history of avaition and their collection. Highly recommend a stop to see it!

“Planes of fame”
Reviewed 11 May 2013

If you have a little time left, don't forget to visit Planes of Fame, a gem of an air museum in Valle.
We just past by not knowing that it was such a well set up museum, lots of planes and accessories to admire!
And Shelley was there to welcome us like VIPs.
