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
My husband and I decided to visit the Palm Springs Art Museum for the first time even though we had been in Palm Springs many times previously. We were really impressed with the quality of the exhibit... more »
I had no idea they would have b.c. art or Van Gogh. Loved it. It has a little bit of everything, and amazing outdoor statue art. more »
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!!!
