I make a visit to this museum on every trip to Palm Springs. Exhibits and the permanent collections are always fresh and the building itself is spacious and beautiful. Great cafe with outdoor seating.

What a great mid sized contemporary museum (4 floors). They have a variety of spaces to show both there own and touring collection / exhibitions.. A really well curated modern art display. The sculpture garden is worth the visit itself, small, calm and perfectly formed.

Not many signs and found it by accident after stopping for a coffee. Most of the kinetic art was not kinetic and uninspiring. After 4pm it is free which is helpful as we would have been disappointed if paid. All in a few interesting artworks...More
