  • My favorite part of this visit was my husband’s enjoyment of this large museum. It was so much more than what either of us expected. We saw it when we landed in Palm Springs. I chuckled to myself...

  • Three hangers focused on WWII, both Axis and Allied aircraft. Another on the Korean conflict (Cold War jets) and Vietnam. Final hanger contains a F-117 Nighthawk (Gulf war). Dad was a WWII B17...

  • Palm Springs Pathfinders used one of the hangars as the venue for our 2022 Annual Gala. Lulu's catered the event and everything was beautiful. It's amazing how they transformed an airplane hangar into a formal venue that included areas for a formal sit down dinner for 200, a variety of casino style gaming tables, additionally areas for our silent auction and even a full sized antique car. Not cramped at all. Staff was professional and catered to all of our needs. Thank you P.S A.M. Job well done!!!
  • Everything about this museum was impressive. Their collection of aircrafts and other artifacts from WW2-present were immense. My boyfriend and I agreed that a full day was needed to see and appreciate everything in each hangar in its entirety. It's also worth noting that the museum was very clean and well organized with very friendly, knowledgeable staff. We will absolutely come back during our next visit.
