Located on an 80-acre campus, the museum’s collection features more than 350 vintage aircraft and a large number of indoor exhibits. The museum offers a number of programs for children and families, including the following:

Soarin’ Saturdays - A monthly event that allows visitors to learn about aviation, build model airplanes, and experiment with the principles of rocketry and flight.

The Great Paper Airplane Fly-Off - An annual event for children between ages 6 and 14. Those who can throw their paper airplane the farthest within each age group are awarded a 60-minute flight over Tucson and a tablet computer.
The Night of Fright - A family-centered Halloween event that brings frightful fun to the museum’s hangars. Kids can wear their costumes and participate in a variety of fun Halloween-themed activities.
