There is always something new at the Palm Springs Air Museum, which is home to one of the world’s largest collections of static and flyable aircraft from WWII through the War on Terror. Unlike many other museums, the air-conditioned hangars have no ropes to keep you from interacting with our exhibits. In addition to the aircraft, exhibits and activities allow visitors of all ages to gain a fresh perspective of the history of US Military operations from the last 100 years. Discover the programs and events taking place at the museum.
The museum has a gift shop that is located inside the museum entrance. It has the best collection of aviation and military themed gifts in the world. From t-shirts, ball caps, models, toys, puzzles, you know name it, and the gift shop has it!
The Palm Springs Air Museum also has a 12,700 volume research library located upstairs above the main lobby. In the outer room of the library are computer flight simulators to entertain and teach the principles of flight to people of all ages.
Additionally, The Ron Auen Theatre is located adjacent to the visitor services desk, and has a continuous run of documentary movies throughout the day. It houses numerous, highly detailed airplane models that guests are welcome to look at, and even has some special movie posters signed by famous actors.
