We visited the Palm Springs Air Museum to see aircraft from WW11, but found the facility had much more to see. There was the Pacific Hangar with displays on Pearl Harbour and planes from WW11. There was also the European Hangar with more planes, including a British Spitfire. The highlight for us was the B17 Bomber. For an extra charge... More

Well worth a visit! Takes a couple of hours to take it all in. Plenty of good photo opportunities with the amazing old planes. All the volunteers are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. If going to Palm Springs its a must!

This outing was planned more for the husband but I found it an excellent adventure too. We went on a Saturday and through Memorial Day, every Saturday they have guest speakers give talks and then there is a flight demonstration. We thoroughly enjoyed the talk, the exhibits and seeing a plane used during WW2 take flight. But the icing for... More

Excellent museum, lots of aircrafts in beautiful condition, including MK 14 spitfire in flying condition. Lots of enthusiasts walking around more than happy to impart information about the display aircrafts. Many of them are ex- pilots.

We took our 9 year-old grandson. He was fascinated with the planes, the simulators, the film about the torpedo boats, and particularly getting inside the B-17 bomber.

Not as interesting as I anticipated. The docents were great, but I If you were in the Air Force or are a pilot, I a sure you would find it more exciting.

Brought visiting friends on Saturday. Wonderful experience. Heard interesting speech on WW 2, tried simulators, went through a real bomber & watched one of the old war planes take off & circle us 3 times before leaving the area. Docents are so knowledgable & seem to love their jobs! In the library, we paged through 1950's Life magazines & had... More
