“Boneyard”/AMARG Tour

Effective May 1, 2017 additional security procedures will be in effect in order for qualified individuals to take the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG) / Boneyard Tour.  For specific details and information please call 520.574.0462.

Through a special Support Agreement, the Pima Air & Space Museum is the exclusive operator of the "Boneyard" Tour aka the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG) Facility on the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. We offer climate-controlled motorcoaches with an experienced, friendly docent on board to narrate the tour of the 4,000+ aircraft from the U.S. Air Force, Navy-Marine Corps, Army, Coast Guard, and several federal agencies including NASA in varying degrees of storage, being regenerated or recycled. All nationalities are welcome on the tour (with identity cards).

 

Because AMARG is part of a U.S. Air Force base, due to base gate restrictions, tours are only operated Monday through Friday and are not operated on federal holidays. “Boneyard”/AMARG tour tickets are available for sale on a first come basis each day. Despite our best efforts these tours can sell out so please plan ahead.

 

Upon purchase all purchasers age 16 & older must present their government-issued Identification Card (passport, U.S. military ID or U.S. driver's license) at the Pima Air & Space Museum Admissions counter. The bus begins loading approximately 15 minutes before the tour departure time. To load on the bus you need to have your government-issued ID and a Boarding Pass.
