|About these ratings|
The Palm Springs Air Museum boasts an extensive collection of aircraft from World War II, including planes that range from the Boeing B17 Flying Fortress to the Grumman F-14 Tomcat to the Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star. The planes are positioned throughout the museum, not unlike the Smithsonian's Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. A TripAdvisor user, who especially appreciated the knowledgeable docents, said: "The planes were beautifully restored and there were maps on the walls so you could geographically place where events happened. Well worth a trip."
You may want to prearrange a group tour of the museum, since these are often led by veterans and pilots. For information on the tours, you can call 760-482-1839 or e-mail Education@PalmSpringsAirMuseum.org.
Tickets range in price from $15 for adults to $13 for seniors and older children to $8 for younger children. There are also discounts for active military and their families. The museum is open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., except for February 7, 2014, Thanksgiving and Christmas. You'll find the museum just east of the city center on North Gene Autry Trail.
