Pima Air & Space Museum

Pima Air & Space Museum has announced free admission for active military, their spouses and dependents this Independence Day. The museum would like to thank our active military for their service during these tough financial times by offering free admission during normal business hours 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (last admission 4 PM) for one day only, July 4, 2013. Military ID is required for admission.

“We are happy to offer a little perk to our military especially in light of recent cutbacks for the July 4th holiday,” stated Yvonne Morris, Executive Director of the not-for-profit Arizona Aerospace Foundation that operates Pima Air & Space. She continued, “It’s always heartwarming to watch the enthusiasm as parents share their knowledge of our collection with their kids.”

Pima Air & Space’s onsite restaurant, Flight Grill, will be open as usual. The docent-narrated tram tour ($6pp) facilitates experiencing the amazing outdoor aircrafts over the museum’s 80 acres. Due to the holiday, the “Boneyard”/AMARG tours will not be available. Pima Air & Space Museum traditionally offers free admission for active-duty military on Veterans Day and Memorial Day, however this is a one-time offer for July 4th– only for 2013.
