We decided to visit the Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Desert because we had never been there. There were a lot of pieces to see and study. We enjoyed the venue and will take a trip to the Pam Springs branch soon.

We loved this Art Museum which featured original interactive installations. Hooked onto a very informative docent tour which animated and enhanced our appreciation of many of the art displays. How nice that you can attend Thursday evenings at no charge

There is a lot of things to look at in the museum. This is a great place to go to be out of the heat and yet find a good way to occupy your time.

This is a well laid out museum. It has beautiful restored planes. It also has beautiful detailed models of both planes and warships. There are descriptive narratives and docents around for information. There is also a video screening room.

This museum of Art has quite a few interesting collections. There is a movie theatre in the basement. Local contemporary artist and international ones are together for a really enjoyable moment.

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.
