Trip Planner: USA / California / California Desert / Greater Palm Springs / Palm Springs / Palm Springs Art Museum
Located in a building that itself is a work of art, Palm Springs Art Museum boasts a collection by prominent modern and contemporary artists. Hidden in this desert oasis are the works of Pablo Picasso, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, and many others. Contemporary design, painting, sculpture, and photography reside with Native American and Mesoamerican art. The two styles seamlessly blend and bring out the essence of the American Southwest as the meeting point of the two worlds, ancient and modern. Temporary exhibits boost the rich permanent collection. The museum offers very popular, expert guided tours. If you’re interested in taking part, you should make a telephone reservation ahead of time.

Palm Springs Art Museum reviews
Great little museum with excellent modern art. Absolutely loved the Mexican modernism and Robert Longo exhibits. The giant Marilyn Monroe out front is amazing as well.

Beautiful museum, lots of pieces to look at, airy and roomy. Fair entrance fee and I loved the outdoor exhibits too. Free parking which was great and right by all the downtown shopping

We came to escape the heat and enjoyed the whole place. The building is beautifully designed and the collections were interesting and diverse. The sculpture garden and botanical specimens were fascinating in spite of my being a Chihuly fan. Really cool collection of glass artists’ works.
This museum is a gem! Beautiful building, eclectic and respectable exhibitions to compliment staple pieces from artist you'd never expect to be able to see in person. Thanks to the city of Palm Springs for sponsoring the Free Thursdays that motivated to go check it out, and so very happy I did! Can't wait to go back!!!
Came here to the art museum not expecting more than a few hours of air conditioning. We were pleasantly surprised by the collection of modern and contemporary art with a few Van Gough paintings. We enjoyed our walk around the museum and sculpture gardens. We also liked the bar downstairs and had a quick snack and drink before leaving the museum. This was a highlight of our trip to Palm Springs and would recommend it to anyone visiting.
Lovely and full of surprises! Could’ve spent hours there. The cafe is fun too! Gotta sit in the sculpture garden. It’s beautiful and relaxing!
If you are looking for cool place to spend a Palm Springs afternoon try this museum for art. It is within easy walking distance of the downtown restaurants and shops. The permanent displays are wonderful and the every changing gallery features will keep you coming back. It Is free on Thursday’s and there is alway plenty of parking. It one of the cultural highlights of the greater Coachella Valley. As a local I visit several times a year and look for special events of interest. This is a destination for entertaining out of town guests visiting. You will enjoy discovering it.
