Really enjoyed the Palm Springs air Museum with all it's interesting history. Definitely worth the time reading or listening to audio presentations about our armed forces. Seeing these old planes up close and talking to the docents was very enjoyable afternoon for us. We happened to be visiting the Air Museum on a day when there was an event going... More

Being a former commercial pilot and mariner I'm attracted to anything that flies or floats. This museum is well worth seeing.

Incredible experience seeing planes that flew in WWII and still in flying certification. The opportunity actually climb into a bomber and see all that was necessary to carry out a mission and the responsibilities of such young men sends chills up and down your spine, especially a veteran like myself. The docents were brilliant in their knowledge and explanation of... More

We were told 2.5 hours would be more than enough time to see the entire museum. We arrived as the museum opened, we had been chatting to the lovely lady stuffing envelopes at the front desk for 20 minutes before finding out we had to go to the gift shop to purchase tickets. The current gift shop manager is retiring,... More

This was a cute little museum, focusing mainly on the WW2 era. There are some great planes to see, and a lot of historical information. If you really went through this museum you could easily spend the whole day there, although I only could handle about 3 hours before I got museum fatigue. Don't miss out on the flight simulators...

This is a nice little museum of airplanes. They have so many historical airplanes, some that still fly. My boys loved this museum, so much information and you get to see everything up close.

I'm not a plane or military buff but our visitors from Canada loved this place. The docents were extremely knowledgeable, several with first-hand experience with the planes. The museum also has pretty professional level flight simulators and a great library that includes old Look and Life mags along with Nat Geos. Excellent war footages. We spent three hours there and...

This is a very amazing place. The history just blows you away and you can get close enough to see these amazing flying machines of the past. What I love also is that our Vets are fully on board to give you a tour and tell you story your grand parents forgot to tell you about. Every turn you make... More
