Advances in aviation have made air travel safer and decreased the amount of injuries sustained from long-distance pole vaults or nasty slips off Michael Jordan’s shoulders.

Choose between the following options:

  • For $7, you get admission for one adult (up to a $15 value).
  • For $25, you get admission for four adults (up to a $60 value).

The Palm Springs Air Museum comprises three environmentally controlled hangars encompassing 70,000 square, which house a squadron of WWII-era warplanes. The 10-acre ode to aeronautics displays a rotating fleet of mile-high marvels with one of the world’s largest collections of World War II aircraft and an average of 26 planes on display daily. Visitors can request a guided tour of the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress bomber, serenade a Grumman F-14 Tomcat with “Highway to the Danger Zone,” or try to guess the number of jellybeans that could fit into a Douglas C-47 Dakota transport plane.

An on-site documentary theater and a library of 8,500 volumes related to aviation history ensure no visitor leaves without a deeper understanding of aviation’s significance to U.S. history. The museum frequently hosts flight demonstrations on Saturdays, such as the upcoming celebration of the Douglas DC-3/C-47 on November 5, which features a flight exhibition of the C-47, or the December 10 Santa Fly-In, which features St. Nick arriving on the airfield in a Stearman Biplane, as his reindeer won't report for duty until mid-December.

Though Palm Springs Air Museum sometimes features discounted prices online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
