Museum Volunteers will also be on hand to answer questions and provide the historical back drop for the aircraft you are sitting in. Guests are strongly cautioned to dress appropriately for climbing into the planes and also reminded not to leave their cameras at home. This is a rare experience that you’ll want to remember forever. Open cockpit experience is free with paid Museum admission. The Palm Springs Air Museum reserves the right to refuse access to anyone deemed to be a hazard to themselves, other guests and/ or the aircraft.
