Pima Air & Space Museum

The museum proudly advertises its pet-friendly status and – having spent much of a day wandering its hangers and grounds with “The Boy” – I can attest to the fact that this is an ideal place to take one’s two- and four-legged kids while in Tucson. The collection of almost 300 aircraft and spacecraft from around the globe includes many rare and one-of-a-kind craft, among them a B-29 Superfortress, the SR-71 Blackbird, and a rare World War II German V-1 “buzz bomb.” The museum maintains its own aircraft restoration center, known as the “Boneyard” and located at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base nearby. Although dogs are not permitted on the bus tour of the Boneyard, the museum’s greeter told my People that someone would gladly keep me company if they wanted to take the tour.
