Great day with my special education students. They enjoyed it thoroughly and the docents were most accommodating!

My hubby wanted to go see this when we were in Palm Springs for our anniversary. I said ooo-kaaay...thinking all the way there - Oh Yippee...But when I walked up close & personal to those beautiful planes and experienced the history the museum provides...well - It was a lot of walking - wore me out for a couple of days...But...

Staff here are super friendly and there is so much to do and look at. The fact that most of the planes there still fly makes this place magical - definitely recommend!

This is a great place to see historical aircraft. My favorite is the B-17 you can go inside, plus the amphibs out back. Great for families and plane buffs.

Often have WWII vets that can tell you really interesting history not found on the plaques or in the material. Wide variety of aircraft and flight simulator. Very cool

We had a little issue at the beginning because I was not aware that this museum would not honor the discount coupon we had but we decided to go in anyways. We enjoyed looking at the planes and just getting a history lesson. I must say that... More

The PS Air Museum is a great place to visit. I live in Palm Springs and have been many times. The docents are very knowledgeable and it is nice to see drip pans under most of the planes, as they are flown regularily.

They have all planes on display that I built as model kit when I was a kid. It is a great experience to see all these war birds in reality although it gave me chills. I was astonished about how much larger the older planes were than I had expected and how much smaller the newer planes. The exhibit is... More
