Looking for a unique place for a field trip?
The Arizona Commemorative Air Force Museum is waiting for you! Courage. Sacrifice. Ingenuity. Determination. We honor all of these qualities possessed by the military veterans who inspire our mission.
Learn more about the Arizona Commemorative Air Force Museum’s humble beginnings and how our air force museum has grown from a one-plane project to a one-of-a-kind collection and world-renowned attraction.
Whether you are a school, scout group, veterans group, activities director, or just a large family, we will make it an experience you won’t soon forget. Each group will be assigned to a specific number of docents to give guided tours and answer any questions you have. If you are a large group, we will break you into smaller groups to ensure that each member has a chance to get an up close and personal look at our exhibits.
There are no picnic areas or lunch facilities on site. However, Falcon Field has a nice playground area with picnic tables nearby where everyone can enjoy a sack lunch. This is a great spot to watch the airplanes land and take off from Falcon Field. If you have a smaller group, you can purchase a picnic lunch to take with you from Jimmy John’s, which is right across the street from the museum on McKellips. You’re encouraged to make arrangements in advance for box lunches.
