Home Travel & Leisure Travel Big Band Dance and More at the Arizona Commemorative Air Force Museum

At the Arizona Commemorative Air Force Museum, one of Phoenix’s top-rated attractions, you can get up-close and personal with our airplanes and learn how they were used throughout the history of combat. Climb aboard one of the rarest B-17 Bombers in the world, “Sentimental Journey” and feel the rumble from the radial engines down to your bones when they start up.

Our friendly, knowledgeable docents will bring to life the tales of combat heroes like the Tuskegee Airmen and Women Air Service Pilots who overcame tremendous obstacles to serve our country. Browse through hundreds of exhibits and authentic war artifacts that chronicle the stories of people who rose to meet extraordinary challenges and helped save the world from tyranny.

Watch aircraft mechanics at work and then stop by our PX Museum Gift Store for unique gifts and war memorabilia. Better yet, book a once-in-a-lifetime ride on any of our seven flying WWII airplanes.
