This museum contains artifacts pertaining to the history of La Quinta. The Cahuilla First Nations who were the original inhabitants of this magnificent land. In order to understand the depth of history in this area, this museum is a must see.

There is no food/drink available at the La Quinta Museum, however we are within walking distance of Old Town, and there are many dining options there. Thanks for asking and we hope to see you soon!
