The Palm Springs Air Museum houses a great collection of mostly WWII-vintage aircraft, many of which still fly. One of the best parts about a visit to this museum is getting a chance to speak with some of the many volunteer docents on hand. Like the aircraft, many of them are WWII-vintage as well, and some of them flew in the same types of planes that are on display.
They have a B-17 Flying Fortress (that still flies occasionally) on display, and it was open for tours (as long as you were taller than the bomb).
Lots of great artwork on the planes as well.
