We promise you......your kids will actually forget about texting on their phones this summer at the Arizona Commemorative Air Force Museum. Get out of the heat and bring them to experience a rare, multi-sensory experience like no other. At the only combat aviation museum in Phoenix, you and your family will take an edu-venture through history and learn how aircraft evolved as a heroic partner to ground and sea operations from WWI to present. At our museum we WANT you to 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. (less)...
