  • Small but Swelling with information about the local Native Americans. Great gift shop. Very knowledgeable staff. I understand that they are building a "State of the Art". I can't wait for the opening.
  • This museum seemed small from the outside but it did not disappoint. We were looking for a native American museum for history research in the desert area. This place came recommended by a friend who said it was "outstanding". Indeed it was! For being a smaller site than bigger museums that I've visited before, the Coachella Valley museum is fascinating! They have an extensive collection of Native American artifacts, photos and early American novelites I was in awe. The fee was $8 for adults, children are free. We had a wonderful tour guide who made the experience enriching. I do recommend the tour guide experience. Her knowledge and personality really enhanced our experience! There is so much to take in and see! Great place for all ages. I would return and highly recommend.
