Palm Springs Air Museum
The Palm Springs Air Museum houses one of the nation's largest collection of World War II flying aircraft displayed in modern, well lighted, air-conditioned and clean hangars. Our Buddy Rodgers Theater shows daily documentaries about aviation in the military
with an emphasis on World War II. In addition to planes and historic artifacts, the museum is host to a library of 8500 volumes primarily related to aviation and American military history. Complimenting our extensive displays, the museum sponsors Saturday
commemorative educational programs for our visitors and members. These Saturday programs often include demonstration flights of our aircraft. On those days, members and visitors can participate in the sights and sounds of World War II or later conflicts as
these programs dictate.

Children's Discovery Museum of the Desert
The Children's Discovery Museum of the Desert has over fifty "hands-on" exhibits in our main Gallery for children of all ages to learn from in the most interesting and funniest ways possible! As a "hands-on" museum we take the best of both worlds - exhibits
and touch or manipulation - and combine them for a world of discovery! Your visit to our Museum gallery will provide you with opportunities to better understand you child's interests and ways to encourage their natural curiosity through activities at home
& school. A child's motivation to learn depends on meaningful activities and a supportive environment where imagination and curiosity are encouraged.

Coachella Valley History Museum
Long home to the Cahuilla Indians, a new wave of settlers came to the Coachella Valley in the late 1800s along with the Southern Pacific Railroad. Being the halfway point between Yuma and Los Angeles, what is today the city of Indio, was selected by the
Southern Pacific as an ideal train stop. From these humble beginnings sprang an entire valley of cities, all of which have their own distinct personality and history. The Coachella Valley History Museum seeks to share the unique history of the desert and the
pioneers who forged through the difficult environment to create the home it is to so many today.
