Planes of Fame in Valle, Arizona

Planes of Fame in Valle, Arizona

A few months back Brent and I decided to make a quick trip to the Grand Canyon. The kids had never been and Brent had never been. We drove up one day and hung about for a bit, got up the next morning and did a few things and then headed back on home. One of the things we decided to stop and check out was the Planes Of Fame Air Museum in Valle, Arizona.

We walked in and they were not busy at all. Of course when we took this trip it was a bit colder so not a lot of travelers out and about. Which was actually pretty nice for us because we had the whole place to ourselves. We walked around and enjoyed each and every plane. We also talked to the people working there, who were SO friendly, SO kind and SO helpful!

A bit of Information about the Air Museum:

As more and more aircraft were restored and the Planes of Fame collection grew, an additional display facility was opened in Valle, Arizona in 1995. Located halfway between Williams, Arizona and the south rim of the Grand Canyon, this facility houses over 40 of the Museum’s aircraft, many of which are also flyable.

Hours of Operation

The Museum is open every day of the year, with the exception of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and occasional special events.
Normal hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Brent and I paid $16 dollars to get all five of us in plus we were able to walk next door and see the older cars inside of the building there. WELL worth the (very little) amount we paid! So if you are planning a trip up to that area, you must stop and see the airplanes. Here are a few pictures that we took. Of course I have a ton, but thought I would post just a few of them so you can see.
