Interesting couple of hours!

My husband enjoyed this museum. We're from the Seattle area with several Air and Flight museums nearby and still he was able to see a plane or two not seen in person before.

Visited here with my husband who is the aviation fan. The museum was really interesting and the guides excellent. Would recommend this even if you are not into planes.

Absolutely incredible. Keep in mind, it's a work in progress. The docents are super nice and knowledgeable. The planes are incredible and you get to go inside a B-17 (for an extra fee). There are two hangers now and plans to build another. One side focuses on the European war and the other on the Pacific. Plenty of opportunities to... More

Spent 3 hours exploring the 3 hangers and outside aircraft and displays of this museum. Had lunch there as well - sandwich was very good. Nice way to spend an afternoon.

This is an excellent museum, of interest to most all ages. There are lovingly restored military aircraft from both the Pacific Theater and European Theater of WWII. There is also a collection of aircraft used in most all military encounters since WWII. We spent almost all day there and could have stayed longer. The docents are all very interesting to... More

From Pearl Harbor, WWII, and Vietnam, you will find a lot of planes that were in all 3 of the wars. This was a great deal and we enjoyed the History of the 3 wars, the Tuskegee Pilots, and woman who served our country.

I go to the museum each time that I visit...there is always something new to see and experience. Volunteers run the Museum and are extremely informative. See our history in aviation...a good family activity. Many retirees like to visit . Limited food is available and there is a gift shop. You can go inside some of the planes.

There is so much history you simply can't read everything. It was incredible! They had veterans there ready to talk to you and give you information about the planes and the equipment they used during the wars. They have the planes separated by the wars. My husband and I spent 4 hours here and it was worth every second. They... More

Visiting with friends in Palm Desert - we went to the Air Museum and loved it! There are 3 hangars-filled with beautiful restored planes from World War II, lots of history, memorabilia, artifacts, murals, tributes and the best part are the incredible volunteer docents - military veterans! They are there to give impromptu tours, answer questions, and share stories -... More
