La Quinta Museum, La Quinta
(4.6/5 based on 30 reviews on the web)
Don't miss La Quinta's main attraction! The La Quinta Museum showcases La Quinta's history and cultural arts through displays on two floors. There is a diorama of a Cahuilla Indian village and another depicting native animals. Photos of the early resorts remind us of the attraction of the desert early on. The community room exhibits a 32 foot long mural of La Quinta highlights painted by Andre Blanche. While you're there stop in the Museum Store, the place to shop for books about the area and many unique items, some created by local artists.

  • Great little museum in the Old Town area of La Quinta. The downstairs displays are informative and they usually have special displays on the second floor.

  • This is a neat little museum here in La Quinta that I only barely discovered last year. If you're interested in learning about the rich history of the area in person rather than on your smudged phone screen, then this is definitely the place you want to go.
  • A must stop if you are visiting or live here year around. The ladies who work at the museum are very sweet and have answers to any and all questions about the history of the valley. They also have fun programs during the year like coloring book day for adults! Look on the web for info.
