The visitor center has restroom and all brochures. The brochures give you discounts on various exhibits. Palm Springs was very Veteran friendly; offering many discounts and even free admission to many attractions for vets.

Once designed as a gas station in the 50s, this classic MCM building is now restored and used at the base of the PS tram as a visitor centre. Dramatic, with a swooping roof like wings, it's worth a stop for a photograph. Lovely!

When we first came here years ago, we stopped and got a bunch of brochures and info. Fell in love with PS area, and just moved here permanently after retiring. Love it!

This is worth the visit just for the architecture and history of the building alone. Originally a gas station it now houses the visitor centre. Lots of good information as well. Great vistas towards the wind farm and heading toward the tram.
