Frequently Asked Questions

Does the museum have wheelchairs or motorized scooters available for guests to use?

The museum is accessible by wheelchair or motorized scooter, but we do not have any on-site to rent or loan out to guests.

Are pets allowed at the museum?

Leashed pets are permitted to walk both inside the buildings and on the museum’s outside grounds. Please note that only service animals can join you in the restaurant and on the tram tour.

Can I get tickets for my organization’s fundraising activities?

No. The Pima Air & Space Museum is a non-governmental, entirely self-supporting (through tickets, sales, and events) 501 (c) 3 Charitable Not For Profit organization. Our mission is the advancement of aerospace education and preservation but we receive no government or private support for operations. All of our earned revenue goes directly to support this mission. We do Not provide items or tickets for other charitable organizations’ fundraisers or activities. While there is a plethora of very noble and valuable charities in the region, we give back to the local community through our Education Program that provides free admission annually to over 28,000 K-12 school children and community service organizations serving this age demographic as well as special needs groups of all ages.

Is there a picnic area available to eat packed lunches?

With the exception of water, outside food and drink is not permitted on the museum’s property. There is a restaurant on-site that serves lunch and snacks.

Does the museum have space available to park an RV?

There is plenty of free parking available for guests to park an RV during the day while they visit the museum. Please note that overnight parking is not permitted.

How much time should I plan to spend at the museum?

The typical museum visit is approximately 3-4 hours. Two-day passes are available for guests who’d like to spread their visit over two days.

Is there space available to store luggage during my visit?
