Hangar & Ground Map

View hangar and grounds maps of the Pima Air & Space Museum. The museum has grown immensely and today encompasses six indoor exhibit hangars (three dedicated to WWII) across over 300,000 square feet of indoor display space. It also spans across 80 acres and has over 425 aircraft on display.


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, 4 and 5 while the remainder of the outdoor acreage is generally hard-packed dirt. It can be difficult for a thin-wheeled vehicle to move easily in the areas with loose sand when viewing the 150 aircraft outdoors.

Pima Air & Space Museum does not have wheelchairs available.
