Docents have a lot of info to share. Ask them for more details. The pottery exhibits and plant displays really show how the Agua Caliente used their environment to make their lives better. Looking forward to the larger museum!

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.

Very tiny museum but very interesting and it has a small collection of local native art which changes periodically. Well worth a visit to get a feel for the native tribes in the area.

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