Palm Springs Air Museum:
With Veteran’s Day fast approaching (November 11), it is a good opportunity to expose kids to the sacrifices our veterans have made. But to educate kids while keeping their interest is the big challenge.
Palm Springs Air Museum will help you reach those goals with ease. The museum is located by the Palm Springs International Airport. It occupies, two large hangers and has the largest collection of flyable planes from WWII.
The collection of aircraft is not only from WWII, but also includes a number of marvelous planes from Korean conflict and Vietnam.
The museum allows up close interaction of planes, including the ability to go inside a B-17 Bomber (or the flying fortress).
Excited yet? But wait there is more! There are a number of model airplanes on display as well!
There are a number of well informed volunteers that can guide and help you navigate the large collection. Through out the year, there are a number of programs and special programs, so make sure you check their website for the latest events.
We would highly recommend Palm Springs Air Museum for your next visit.
