The 390th Memorial Museum, which is on the grounds of the Pima Air and Space Museum, has been given a rare acknowledgement of excellence.

So far, it's the only museum in Arizona to receive the Core Documents Verification.

This is a huge achievement.

To put it into perspective, 75 out of the nation's nearly 33,000 museums  have earned this verification, which is only 3%.  

The 390th Memorial Museum earned the verification for its educational mission, ethics, planning, emergency, and collections.

The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Admission is free with admittance to the Pima Air & Space Museum.
