The museum is a must see when in Palm Springs, very informative staff who made us feel very welcome. The highlight was the arrival of a B17 which we had a tour inside.

A nice mix of military planes and jets. Lots of knowledgeable people who love talking and explaining the history of each plane and it’s significance to the war efforts and American history. It was a lovely experience and I would go again.

What a great place to spend a day with the grand kids. Memorial day was awesome. Reviewing all the planes on static display is something to see. The flyover and the Carnation flower drop was a fitting tribute.

We rented a car near LAX. Sixt car rental. Drove to Palm Springs. Just a couple of hours on a Sunday. Saw the train station though.
