  • One of those places that can make someone of any age feel like a kid again. Most of the antique/historic aircraft are in working condition. It is just really cool to poke around and see all these planes. The Air Museum also hosts large events, and to hang out around the aircraft as a venue is really a lot of fun. They were also dog-friendly, even indoors, which is awesome.
  • Cool planes. Expensive admission. No veteran discount for my friend only retired/active duty. Wanted extra to actually go in a plane - but didn't tell u until you were inside. There was an event that evening so many planes were moved outside - un viewable and didn't tell U until you were inside. Save your money unless you spend the whole day to get your money's worth.
  • Very nice museum with great informative staff. Me and my family were amazed by how many great planes and information they had exhibited for the public. Great stuff and a must for all visitors of Palm Springs.
  • Great place to see a wide selection of aircraft, some in flying condition. The library upstairs has one of the most complete collection of aviation literature in the region. There are also a few flight simulators that the kids can enjoy for no charge. Some of the volunteers can be a bit grumpy, but in general a very friendly and inviting museum to learn about aviation history.
  • A lot to see. Came here once. Very beautiful aircrafts. Nice people who enjoy giving information about aircrafts.
