A nice to stop before or after visiting the Joshua Tree National Park. Lots of places to eat and fuel up. The town has lots of great wall murals to check out as well

I was so very much looking forward to seeing my first Oasis! But very disappointed to hike to it, only to find it chain linked fenced off with no access to anything but viewing the Oasis from the outside. Pretty difficult to even get a nice photo without the chain link fence being visible. I highly recommend the Thousand Palms... More

This is sort of an average Visitor Center, but it is a useful stop to get a map and ask questions. the inside exhibits were modest. There is a short nature trail, so you can learn about some of the plants.

We arrived early on a weekend morning, when there were few other visitors around. The building, exhibits and information available on hiking and other park activities, were excellent. The staff were surly and unhelpful. We did not let it detract from our wonderful experience of the park.

Twentynine Palm... C, Front Office Manager at Twentynine Palms Visitors Center, responded to this review

Brian-- Your visit was actually at the Joshua Tree National Park Visitor Center here in 29 Palms, not the town's Visitor Center. We don't have information on specific hikes and park activities here in our facility, we're here for the town of 29 Palms rather than the National Park directly. I'm glad you guys were able to experience our desert,... More

In addition to abundant information about local businesses and places of interest, The Visitor Center Art Gallery displays works by local artists. These pieces offer unique interpretations of the desert experience in a variety of styles and mediums. This is an opportunity to take home original art at surprisingly affordable prices.
