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

social-engine-changeAt the only combat aviation museum in Phoenix, you’ll take an edu-venture through history and learn how aircraft evolved as a heroic 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 muscular 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 seven 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 for you and your pooch. We’re a non-profit organization and staffed 99.9% by dedicated volunteers who honor our mission to restore, preserve, and remember the ingenuity and sacrifices of past generations.  [NOTE:  Our B-17 and B-25 Bombers go out on tour during the summer to visit over 50 cities across the U.S. and Canada.  They’ll return in October.]
