We went to see the Warhol Exhibit, but got so much more. The museum is stunning, the artwork is an unusual collection, but well considered and tasteful. Whimsical and beautiful at the same time. Classy and yet remarkably relate able. BRAVO

The museum has a nice small desert garden. What we appreciated most, though, was the current exhibit of about 80 photos taken in out-of-the-way spots in the desert. It was well curated and nicely displayed. I have recommended it to photographers that I know. BTW,...More

We enjoy this art gallery as it is more modern in style. The art gallery is free. The gallery seems to feature local artists or local sites by other artists. The exhibit when we were there featured photography styles of desert and local sites. It...More

The black and white photographic exhibit didn't appeal to us. Maybe when the current exhibit changes, we will return. It's unfortunate that we missed the past "Glass Exhibit". The beautifully landscaped sculpture garden is worthy of a visit here. This garden is well-planned out and...More

A small venue museum in Palm Desert. A little disappointed in the photographic exhibit when I attended. Interesting, but sad, mostly black and white images that featured a lot of the Salton Sea and surrounding area of desert in SoCal. This attraction could be passed...More

We always like to visit the Art Museum in Palm Springs on Thursday from 4-8PM during ArtFest. It is relaxed and interesting and it is complimentary during that time.

The architecture of the building is interesting in its own right. The adjacent sculpture garden is stunning. The exhibition that we saw on photographs of desert landscapes was exceptional with excellent labels.

Check the PSAM website. I almost always check out the website of museums where I'll be traveling to see the logistics of visiting the museum and, most of all, what the exhibits will be while I'm there.
