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 on a campus occupying 127 acres. It has also been the home to the Arizona Aviation Hall of Fame since 1991.
In 2006, the museum began construction of an expansion to Hangar 1 that when finished more than doubled the display space of the original building. A new museum store allowed the separation of the gift shop from the admissions area and the modernization of both areas. Hangar 1 was again expanded in 2010 with the addition of 20,000 square feet of new display space and a new, greatly expanded restaurant facility.
In 2015, the continued growth of the museum’s collection required the construction of a third building to house World War II-era aircraft. Centered around both American and Japanese aircraft recovered from the battlefields of New Guinea this building gives visitors a detailed look at World War II in the Pacific and Asia. At the end of 2016, the Pima Air & Space Museum has grown to be one of the largest aviation museums in the country with over 120,000 square feet of indoor display space and a collection of more than 320 aircraft.
Today the Pima Air & Space Museum has grown to be one of the largest non-government funded aviation museums in the world with over 100,000 square feet of indoor display space and a collection of 350 aircraft.
