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.

Great Museum!! Great collection of aircrafts, the staff is insanely knowledgeable about EVERYTHING in the museum and they all seem extremely excited to help you. Not like some museums I have been to where it is someone who is just reciting rehearsed lines. Worth the trip and fun for all ages!!!

Well organized, and very informational staff. Very friendly and eager to give a complete history on each aircraft. Able to walk through a B-17 and get up close to each and every aircraft. Would highly recommend this to anyone that has an interest in aircraft, or WWII history.

How many places can you walk though a B-17? Or see a German 88mm? You can get right up to the planes. Awesome museum.

Spent several hours here looking at the displays inside and out. Lots of people willing to provide answers to your questions. Exceeded my expectations in terms of the number and variety of aircraft. They also have several that they are actively working to restore. Young children will likely get bored, but anyone with a passion/interest in WWII and some newer... More

I loved how friendly everyone was there! The "staff" that show you around or answer questions almost all flew the very aircrafts they discussed. They knew the history because they were apart of it. It made the whole experience very special.

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.
