Stopped in during a visit to Palm Springs. After walking in and paying admission, was greeted and given a intro to the museum, which let us know what the different hangers were about and let us know the different things we could do at the museum. In the different hangers are various ww2-Vietnam era planes. Right beside certain aircraft, there... More

This place is a time capsule! It's fantastic and beautifully laid out - from the artwork on the walls to the models to B-17 you can tour - the presentation is flawless. The volunteers are excited and very, very knowledgeable. Oh, and don't skip the chance to try out the flight simulators and peruse the old magazines and newspapers in... More

This Museum really covers the world wars quite well. I never got this far with my history in school but there is a condensed version of what led up to the world wars and a lot of the air battles and other battles. I was unexpectedly impressed with this museum compared to the AF museum. The weather was too hot... More

The expectation is for a well maintained museum. There are many aircraft worth visiting in a single visit, but there is no need to return. The static indoor exhibits are not well maintained and the museum needs a lot of work. the volunteers deserve a lot of credit so I do recommend a single visit. The flower air drops that... More

I went to the Palm Springs Air Museum last Saturday as of July 23, 2016. It's was quiet in late afternoon and the staffs was very friendly. I noticed a few seniors guys are retired from the military. The lady asked my step father, "If you're interesting to walk up in B-17 aircraft?" My step father asked me, "If I... More

There are a million things to say about this place and how jaw dropping incredible it is. My kids, 8 and 4 had such a great time and we spent about 4 hours there. There is so much information and items to see. The volunteers there are so friendly, nice and approachable. They give you tips on where to start... More

There is so much history there that it's impossible to take it all in with one visit. The guide we had knew everything. We will definitely be back.

Great place to visit when in Palm Springs - extensive collection of war planes - including a B17 that you can tour (and is still able to fly, btw). They are employing war veterans (most probably volunteers) that give an authenticity to the place that would be hard to achieve otherwise. They offer stories from the war (mostly Vietnam, but...
