“Great museum! Don't miss it!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

This museum is more than worth the entrance fee (which is only about 6$!).
It is a hangar full of great planes like ME 109, experimental planes, various drones and a lot more.
Usually there are not many visitors at a time, so you can go around and look at all planes as you like.There is also one cockpit you are allowed to enter and take pictures.
Outside you can also see a Super Constellation, a Blue Angels plane and some more.
The staff of the museum is very friendly and nice to talk with. It seems to be really their hobby and not profit making.

The museum is located at the interstate which leads to the Grand Canyon. It is in the middle of Williams and the Grand Canyon. You can see the Super Constellation from the road. It is next to the Grand Canyon Airport.
It is a great opportunity to stop there and visit the museum on the way to and from the Grand Canyon.

“Great display.”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

Quite unexpected to find a collection of this quality and size in Valle. Have been to the town several times but never visited the air museum . Quite a selection and all of the extra engines, etc. are neat to see. These planes can actually fly. In the air terminal such as it is, there is a neat selection of old autos. Don't miss this free display. All in all, well worth the stop on the way to or from the canyon.

“What a fantastic hidden gem!”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

We stopped in because my husband is a military plane buff, but this place had something for everyone! The lady that worked the desk and the manager (I hate that I can't remember their names) were very friendly and knowledgeable, and we enjoyed our visit with them as much as we did the great old planes on display. The admission fee is very reasonable and the bookshop is filled with great books that you don't see elsewhere. Definitely worth the stop!

“worth the time”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

Stopped in on a whim, saw it on the way to the Grand Canyon...it was worth
the extra time! Lots of interesting historic airplanes are on display and
the exhibits were really well done. They have General MacArthur's plane on
display. Don't drive by - stop in and see it.

“Nice place to visit when you are in the area”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

When driving by be sure to stop at this lovely place. The people are so friendly and know a lot about the planes. Also include the constellation tour to your visit! More than worth a visit!
