Boneyard Project at Pima Air & Space Museum

I am always on the lookout for fun little weekend trips my family can take. It’s nice to get a change of scenery without planning a big expensive vacation. If you head a few hours south to Tucson, you can visit the Pima Air & Space Museum. It is one of the largest air and space museums in the world with over 300 air craft.

Right now they have a really cool exhibit going on called “Return Trip: Art from the Boneyard Project.” The concept was that artists would paint and create art with old military aircraft and nosecones. Some of the pictures look just amazing.

The exhibit is currently running and will end May 31, 2012. I have not been down to see the Pima Air & Space Museum yet, but this seems like a really great time to go. Admission to the museum is as follows:

  • Adults: $15.50
  • Pima County Residents: $12.75
  • Seniors: $12.75
  • Children: $9.00
  • Children 6 & Under: Free
  • Please note that anyone over the age of 16 must provide a government issued ID to attend the museum.

A local blogger, Finley and Oliver, went for a visit and has a great post with even more pictures from the exhibit. You can read all about their trip here.
