Airbase Arizona - Commemorative Air Force
Visit us
the heart ofaviation history

Discover a rare, multi-sensory experience like no other at the Commemorative Air Force Airbase Arizona Museum.

At the only combat aviation museum in Phoenix, you’ll take an edu-venture through history and learn how aircraft evolved as a vital partner to ground and sea operations from WWI to present. Get up close and personal with history. Our friendly docents are the keepers of nostalgic, inspirational stories and are at your service to answer any questions or lead a tour through our collection of artifacts and exhibits.

Walk through our working hangar and watch aircraft mechanics bring powerful engines to life. Climb aboard our bombers and cargo planes or, better yet, book a once-in- a-lifetime flight in an authentic warbird. Choose among six WWII aircraft, from an open biplane to the rarest bombers in the world. And don’t forget to stop by our museum gift store and bring home a bomber jacket. We’re a non-profit organization and staffed 99.9% by dedicated volunteers who honor our mission.

Our mission pillars:  Educate, Inspire, Honor.
