My husband and I visited this air museum and had a wonderful time. The Docents were so informative and shared information on the planes. Our Docent was a WWII Vet and he had many amazing stories to tell us. It was better than watching a movie. Amazing vintage aircraft. We learned so much and were highly entertained in the process....

This museum was absolutely wonderful. The planes, the history, the layout - all fantastic. But the best part had to be the Docents. These wonderful people are so friendly, willing to share their personal stories, experiences & knowledge. I could have spent three days just wandering around looking at everything and talking to the Docents. Even my friend who somehow... More

I think this museum is on the over priced side. It's neat to see all the old planes but there isn't really much to do here.

I have visited the museum before. My last visit was to attend a wedding. The ceremony was held in the "Pacific" hangar. Very spacious. The inside temperature was perfect for such a large space in the middle of August in the desert. Museum provided tables and chairs with a "rough" set up. We were able to start setting prior to...

This place was amazing to see, the displays were phenominal, the staff friendly, and it was not too expensive. If you're ever in Palm Springs, CA I would advise a visit to the Air Museum.

This was a surprise treat from my friend who just told me that we were going to Palm Springs from Palm Desert. My face lit up when I realised he was taking me here, as I knew I was a massive aviation-enthusiast. I thoroughly enjoyed my trip, looking around and into various vintage aircraft, in addition to took onto the... More

Enjoyed the museum, could not believe they didn't offer a military discount for retirees. Had some WWII vets (and other vets) there to speak with, that was a wonderful bonus.

We stopped here just before Christmas when they were having guest speakers that had served in one battle or another. So interesting to hear from men themselves that had flown certain planes that were on display. Since the museum is bordering the airport it was great to have a fly by with some of these fascinating planes. Loved the gift... More

This is a fantastic museum. Can spend several hours. Lots to see. The docents are wonderful. They make the time period come alive. And don't miss the library upstairs. A wonderful way to spend a day. Wish we didn't have to leave to get lunch. Cafe was closed. Could have spent longer.
