Well worth a visit. When the heat of the day rise go here for a magnificent exhibition. If you are the slightest interested in WWII fighter aircrafts this is a must in Palm Springs.

We looked at the reviews on here, at a flier at our hotel and their website and we were really excited to take the kids. Overall we were very underwhelmed. Firstly it says on the website that the hangers are cool and air conditioned, this is completely untrue, there are a pedestal fans everywhere chocking out warm air. The hangars... More

Our children do not get too excited about museums. This place engaged our teenager and younger kids. They loved learning about WWII and getting inside the planes! The best part of the entire visit was the flying simulator! Mr. Bob approached them and asked them if they wanted "to fly a plane!" He walked them through all the necessary steps,... More

We went to entertain our son and all loved it. The planes are magnificent, you can walk through some. The flight simulator was realistic and model planes were accurate. The volunteers all have experience with planes and have their own interesting stories to tell. It's amazing to walk through US history and reflect on all our US soldiers continue to... More

We have been to many of these type of museums, and this was top notch. The planes inside & out were fantastic. I wouldn't suggest going though as we did in summer, HOT was an understatement, inside the hangars & out. But it was well worth it.

If you have any interest in military aviation history, you must go here. Docents are wonderfully knowledgeable and collection is superb. The flight simulators are neat and the staff very helpful.

Fantastic display of aircraft and interesting storyboards on battles and individuals. Talking with the docents, who were actual combat pilots, was a great experience!!!

The Museum is located next to the PS airport. They have some great plans from previous wars. They also have a few planes that you can tour for a small fee that goes towards renovation of another plane. They have many people waling around to answer questions and tell you their stories of war. We met a WWII vet. Great... More
