Quite a variety of aircraft in side the hangers as well as a number parked outside. I think one of the highlights was a 7-8 ft replicate of the USS Missouri as my dad and uncle both served in the Navy and were from Missouri. Vets are available through out the facility to direct and answer questions, which is a... More

Our family made a stop at the Palm Springs Air Museum because my youngest son noticed it was right next to the airport as our plane made its way to the terminal. Well worth the stop! The best part was the guided tour of the Flying Fortress. There are inside exhibits in hangars as well as planes to view outdoors.... More

This is almost as much a war museum as it is an air museum. The collection of aircraft varied and numerous. If you are fascinated with aviation, history, and, in particular, the role of aviation in wars of the 20th century, this place is fascinating and can be an interesting break for the traditional tourist activities in Palm Springs.

This air museum, one we have sited several times, is very well organized and stocked with aircraft from all the conflicts the USA has been involved in. You will not be disappointed if you visit.

You even get to walk through a fighter plane, you will be amazed how little space there is for the crew and airmen.

About five of us adults needed something to do on Jan 12, a very rainy and cool day in PS. We pick the Air Museum. A really good choice. So many terrific air craft. We were like kids walking through the hangers and out on the Tarmac. There were planes from the 1940s all the way up to present day.... More

I have been to this museum several times over the years with my dad who spent his career in aerospace. It had expanded since my last visit and appears it is getting ready to do so again with the addition of another hanger. While it focuses on WWII (don't miss the Pearl Harbor exhibit) it is starting to have more... More

The Air Museum showcases the history of aviation mainly in World War II, in a way that make the planes themselves become almost alivet. It not only exhibits the airplanes, but also gives the story behind the particular plane and a brief history surrounding it. The display and explanations of the Tuskegee Airmen was particularly interesting and moving. The docents,... More
