“Interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

A great museum with all sorts of planes to check out. Well worth a afternoon to walk around in. There is always someone there answer questions if you have any.
They also have live feed of the planes flying into the current airport playing on radio to follow when you are out on the tarmac.

“one of the best of its type”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

It is a must see for anyone who enjoys history and historic aircraft perfectly restored. The three hangers are well lighted and have just the right amount of AC. Outdoors there are several aircraft to see, but it was to hot the day I visited. There are several people of the greatest generation there who can tell you all about each aircraft. the only drawback was the eating facilities, where I waited but received no service. I saw others eating so I figure the folk stepped out for a reason. But don't let that minor nit keep you from a wonderful experience.

So much to see. Great displays. Great interactive for kids. Many volunteers there with life knowledge on the aircraft and the military of the times.

“So much to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

We visited with our Dad on D-Day and enjoyed the museum both inside and out! Inside, there are Veterans happy to share their experiences and delighted to learn about Dad's military experience. They made the exhibits come to life.

There are two large hangers with lots of memorabilia and fantastic planes to see. There are a few interactive exhibits which help tell the story of how the air war unfolded. Outside, in the blazing heat, there are a few other aircraft which Dad loved seeing. I liked being able to stand under the wings in the shade.

There is much to see here so plan on at least 2 hours. We had to cut our visit short so we plan to return again on our next visit to Palm Springs.

“What a tribute.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

The air museum is a tribute to flight and to the airmen that flew these planes. A number of them still fly and if you are so inclined you can make a reservation and go up in one.
