Jewel inside the Pima Air and Space Museum

Incredible collection of WWII bomber memorabilia, scale models, and of course the bombers. Wow! Next to Duxford, one of the best presentations I've seen.

This is a wonderful Museum housing the 390th & 95 Bomb Groups of the 8th Air Force located within the Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona. The Museum features a fully restored B-17G, Flying Fortress and many other great exhibits. You can't miss the building because of its new signage display based on the famous Top Cover photograph...

Very nice facility with lots of historical pieces to include a restored B-17. Wish I would had more time to visit just this one, but be aware this closes before the Pima Air Museum.

This museum is located inside the air and space museum. It's a nice bit of history that tells the tales of the 390th after Pearl Harbor. There is a huge bomber plane that you can climb up into and see the inner parts. Really cool for the kids.

Located on the grounds of the Pima Air & Space Museum, this is a separately run building housing a B17 Flying Fortress and a lot of memorabilia from WWII. I found this to be one of the most interesting parts of the compound. If you are at the Air and Space museum this is an absolute must to see.

The 390th Bomb Group flew 301 missions over Europe from 1943 to 1945, earning two Presidential Unit Citations, one shared, and recorded the most enemy aircraft destroyed by one group in a single mission, 62 over Munster. Although 714 airman of the Group gave their lives in the battle over Europe, the 390th was never turned back from their intended... More

I try to come to this museum at least once a year. Things are always changing and getting better. Since a renovation last year they added an upper level and made the place much larger. I am a huge fan of the nose art section on the upper level. They also have the most authentically restored B-17 I have ever... More

It was great seeing all the memorabilia and stories from the 390th. Seeing it in person brings everything to life. Since it was included in the Air Museum and was free (they ask for a free will donation) we stopped in. It was great, you were able to see a plane and what it must have been like for the... More

This is an independent museum that is on the grounds of the Pima Air and Space Museum. It's recently been renovated, and the displays inside are well done. The docents are eager to walk around with you and give you the history of the 390th and the displays. I especially liked the section on the upper level about the history... More
