My daughter is an aviation enthusiasts, as we loved this museum. Was not expecting it to be as large or as nice as it was.

“Great place to visit!”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

We enjoyed the air museum. Its right next to the airport so you get to watch the planes take off and land. 2 big hangers full of planes and war memorabilia. Enjoyed going upstairs and doing the flying simulators. The volunteers are really into this stuff. They really talk your ears off.

“A unique experience”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

This is so much more than a museum. The volunteers are so passionate about the museum and have a unique first hand knowledge of the aircraft in their care.

“WW II Galore”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

If you love older airplanes or love WW II history then this attraction is worth a trip to Palm Springs just for that purpose. You should spend days and days exploring the air museum. If you like older airplanes or WW II history, then definitely come on by. The museum is hands on with all of the airplanes accessible and the exhibits do a nice job of putting things into context.

“Great WWII aircraft”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

If you are into aircraft this is almost better than Oshkosh. I have worked the EAA Airventure for years and Sun N Fun in Lakeland and for the cost admission this is a great value. The docents have been active participants in WWII and the Korean Conflict and provide first hand knowledge of the aircraft on display. Unbelievable value for generations of those who fought to keep Democracy free for the World. Thank you to the Docents for serving our Country when the world was a slightly different place.
You will be impressed with the service of these outstanding mem and women!
