If you are into aircraft this is almost better than Oshkosh. I have worked the EAA Airventure for years and Sun N Fun in Lakeland and for the cost admission this is a great value. The docents have been active participants in WWII and the Korean Conflict and provide first hand knowledge of the aircraft on display. Unbelievable value for... More

Visited the Air Museum on our way back to Vancouver Island and found not only the aircraft and displays to be amazing but great staff and volunteers. As we travel with our dog, called ahead to ensure that we could bring him into the museum and the answer was yes (but don't let him bite the tires). Ha Ha. Its... More

I went to this museum with my husband and 3 young children. One of the girls is very girlie and loves everything pink. We all loved it, even the girlie one! The guides were informative, extremely courteous and also provided thought provoking testimonies. There is plenty to see and do.

This museum is a must for any history buff visiting the PalmSprings area. It has two large hangers, one focusing on naval aviation in WWII and one on land based based military aircraft from that era, plus a growing collection of Vietnam and Cold War aircraft including a MIG 21 outside. The docents are great and it is very humbling... More

Nice exhibit mainly focused around WWII aircraft from both Pacific and European theaters. Each theater has its own wing. There are also plane including some jets out on the tarmac for viewing. A few of the planes, inside and out, are available for entry.

My four children and I just spent a couple of hours at the air museum yesterday. What a great way to spend a few hours in Palm Springs. My boys (9 and 11) were keen, but my daughters were reluctant as military history really isn't their thing. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. There are many docents available to answer questions,...
