Was pleasantly surprised at the wonderful condition of all the planes and displays. There were many, many docents around to give you insights into the history of many exhibits. The flight simulators were of interest, although you had to pay an extra $25 for one....More

It's the best because the refurbish all of the aircraft and they all fly. Want a ride in a WWII bomber?. Each hanger is themed and has artifacts from the era including uniforms other machines and personal items.

This museum has a large collection of WW2 fighters and bombers. You can tour inside some of the planes. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The information they provide is very interesting. What these pilots went through to fly these missions was amazing.

It was my first experience at an Air Museum and I was astonished at how much history and artifacts are stored here. Lots of aircraft to learn about and interesting war information. We even got to see an old plane take off on the runway.

This museum is a must see when you get to Pam Springs. Very nice displays of vintage aircrafts and other items related to aviation. Staff is outstanding and knowledgeable of the history. Bring your camera.

The collection is varied of well preserved warbirds and Cold War era fighter jets. The museum could present the aircraft with greater detail about their history in action. This is a good place to visit for the military history or aviation buff.

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.
