  • If you like military history and are in the Palm Springs/Coachella Valley area of California, make the drive east on Interstate-10 into the desert and see this little museum. Admission isn't even that...  more »

  • We had stopped along the highway due to overheating - as you know the temperatures can get rather high during the day. We were pleasantly surprised to find this museum alongside a place to refresh ourselves. Knowledgeable staff and more than enough authentic memorabilia to keep you busy.
  • Nice museum and it's growing! See actual tanks and discover the history of the area. There is an outdoor area featuring several types of tank and other military vehicles. The museum building feature many displays of military hardware and an impressive 3D relief map of the area. It's a great place to teach students about our preparations to enter World War Two.
  • I liked coming here because this area had a lot of military history (palm desert) including being a desert training area during WW II for US troops deploying to North Africa
  • The museum was great but the 'Tank Garden' was closed so you couldn't see any of the tanks. They did give us a discount on admission but we drove a long way to see and touch the tanks and the kids were disappointed. The staff said it is supposed to be ready by Nov 2017.
  • It's more interesting than I thought it would be. To the right of the statue is an area with tables to sit at. It's very clean, the plants are beautiful. Everything was very well kept. Down the road behind the museum area is a free dry camp with around 20 spaces. It, too, was very well kept. It is managed by a very nice couple. The spaces were large enough for my van and for my dogs to play. There are small fire rings down at the end of the space.
