Pima Air and Space Museum

Pima Air and Space Museum

Tucson's Pima Air and Space Museum is home to over 200 aircraft on display and has five large hangars totaling 100,000 square feet of exhibit space. An original WWII barracks contains an extensive model collection, which shows virtually all U. S. military aircraft from pre-World War I to the present.
The museum enjoys an international reputation as one of the best anywhere. For aviation enthusiasts of all ages, this Tucson Aviation Museum brings history to life.

Tucson travelers can view more than 250 aircraft, including bombers, spy planes and helicopters. Because of the pleasant Tucson weather, many of the attractions were built outdoors.

   

Titan Missile Museum

Titan Missile MuseumWhen the SALT Treaty called for the de-activation of the 18 Titan missile silos near Tucson Arizona, volunteers at the Pima Air & Space Museum asked if one could be kept for public tours. After much negotiation, including additional talks with SALT officials, the Green Valley complex of the 390th Strategic Missile Wing was opened to the public.

After watching a video about the history of the Titan and its deadly nuclear capabilities, you will be taken deep in to the command center. Here, essential equipment--indeed the center itself--is mounted on springs to withstand anything but a direct hit. Then you pass through a couple of 6,000 pound blast doors and walk along a space-age corridor to the silo itself. The 110 foot tall missile weighed 170 tons when it was fueled and ready to fly. It's empty and harmless now, but it still looks deadly, crouched on its launch pad.
