All of the museum buildings are accessible. The floors are poured cement. Accessible parking spaces (handicapped permit required) are located near the entrance to the museum. A paved walkway connects the Main Hangar, Hangar 3 and Hangar 4 while the remainder of the outdoor acreage is generally hard-packed dirt over caliche (the solid-clay-earth layer that allows for the planes to be stored here without sinking). It can be difficult for a thin-wheeled vehicle to move easily in the areas with loose sand on top of the caliche when viewing the 150 aircraft outdoors.
Wheelchairs and walkers are available on a first-come basis as a convenience while visiting the museum. We recommend staying on the paved walkways when using the museum’s wheelchairs and walkers.
Both the “Boneyard”/AMARG Bus Tour and the Tram Tour of the Pima Air & Space Museum’s grounds are available with accessible seating however we need advanced notification: 3 business days for the "Boneyard"/AMARG bus, 30 minutes for the Tram. If you purchase your "Boneyard"/AMARG Tour in advance, the bus company requires a 3-day-advanced notice so please email us or call 520 574-0462 in addition to your online/telephone purchase to notify us. "Boneyard"/AMARG Tours only operate on non-federal holiday weedays.
We have limited accessible exhibits for children. Currently only the Lunar Landing Simulator in the Dorothy Lindley Space Gallery can be accessed from a standard-height wheelchair (there is no paved path to the Space Gallery, just hard-packed dirt). However, the 4th Saturday of the summer months (evenings from 5 to 9pm in June, July and August) we feature many kid activities on tables that can be easily accessed from a wheelchair in the Main Hangar and Hangars 3 and 4.
