We liked seeing the exhibits at the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum. The museum is located at the Village Green Heritage Center on Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs. I enjoyed seeing the Native Art, baskets, and learning more about the history.

There is street parking right out front. Not sure if any of the spots are designated "handicapped". I would suggest you contact the museum.
