“Gorgeous aircraft”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

If you love heavy metal or just polished old metal, this is the place for you. Lovingly kept mostly WWII aircraft gleamingly bright in the hot desert sun - Howard Hughes' ghost probably lives here...

“An educational experience”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

This year was our second visit to this excellent museum when we were invited to a special event held in one of the hangers. We were impressed once again by the comprehensive collection of WW II planes and memorabilia, informative staff, and hands on exhibits. The museum is fascinating and well worth a visit when in Palm Springs. Allow several hours to do it justice.

“Air Museum in Palm Springs”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

If you like World War II plane and great gentlemen that served in the arm forces you will love this place. Just talking to these fine gentlemen who share their stories with you and have so much knowledge of the planes is great.

“A nice way to spend the morning”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

This is a fantastic facility with great guides who have flown those planes
The museum is in great condition & all the planes are immaculate
You can go not a number of the planes / helicopters
Good value for money
Enjoyed by my husband -who is into planes & I also found it interesting
The models of the war ships are worth the visit by themselves
