The Palm Springs Air Museum is dedicated to the restoration, preservation and operation of America's legendary fighters, bombers and trainers. Think that's pretty cool? What if we told you that the museum also contains one of the world's largest collections of flying WWII airplanes? Impressed now?
The flying aircraft at this popular aviation museum are displayed in modern, well lit hangars, and yes kids, you can see actual wartime aircraft in person!
Kids can hear the roar of the mightiest piston engines ever built, as well as climb up and look in the actual cockpits of legendary fighters and bombers of the conflict.
From Bearcats, to Hellcats, Wildcats, Tomcats and Thunderbolts, the collection at the Palm Springs Air Museum is truly spectacular!
It's worth also checking out the Buddy Rodgers Theater that offers daily documentaries all about aviation in the military, with an emphasis on WWII.
