Take an hour or so and visit. Very soothing and convenient to downtown. Free museum parking and overflow across the street in free city ramp.

This is a small very accessible museum that never fails to provide food for thought and the soul. Affordable, accessible, (although it is blocked by the towering new hotels.) and enjoyable.

This is a small museum with enough variation of exhibits to appeal to almost anyone. It is well staffed, offers a guided tour, and has a nice gift shop. Very affordable and located in a convenient part of downtown Palm Springs.
