Interesting place that they are expanding to include more planes. Good exhibits on WW2 and Vietnam. Right next to Palm Springs Airport so got to see some planes taking off and landing. $16.50 was reasonable I thought.

My wife and I love the Palm Springs Air Museum. It is full of amazing planes and interesting history. But probably our favorite part of visiting there is talking to the docents. We were both in the military and it is an honor and a privilege to talk to the people who piloted these amazing pieces of aviation history both... More

This is a must see if you are a aviation person, and like history. Surprisingly I did enjoy it. Don't need reservations. Easy to get to. Last to see, great for taking pictures.

Very inspiring and informative way to spend an afternoon in Palm Springs. Great exhibits, planes, interactive videos and a great film about Pearl Harbor. We have been to many air shows but this opportunity to see the planes up close beats all!

Since Palm Springs turns out to be half Canadian during the winter months, they had a few Canadian flags and speakers for an afternoon. One of our uncles had been a bombarder in the Canadian Air Force, shoot down on his first mission of the war. He spent the remainder of the war as a POW, some 4 1/2 years.... More

Visiting this museum is reason enough to travel to Palm Springs, CA. Besides a vast array of aircraft there is an opportunity to meet history. I had the great pleasure of meeting Dean Hunter whose book tells an incredible story. He is joined by several other "docents" each of who is a walking, talking living hero with great stories to...

I usually visit every year or two. The planes and exhibits are interesting but I really enjoy talking with the Docents - people with military or related experience. Our Docent, Frank, gave us an excellent tour of the B17 Bomber. He was very informative and engaging. Thank you very much.

The Museum is all airplanes (and air related displays) divided into the different theaters of war - Europe and the Pacific. While the planes were in amazing, what really made this place was the staff. It's all volunteers - mostly older folks with lots of knowledge and who love to talk about the planes. For instance, if you take a... More

Wide variety of aircraft, many with storied history. Museum Docents bring the aircraft to life as many have flown these aircraft. Diverse collection, well displayed, and reasonably priced admission, all make this a great place to visit.

We toured with a docent on Saturday and were pleasantly surprised at just how much there is to see . . . and touch...here. They will let you actually sit in the cockpit of a WW II plane, or the kids can play in the cockpit and cargo area of a "flying boxcar." The docent was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly....
