I used to be a member of the PSAM, but have not renewed because they seem to have canceled their community programs, and a lot of their performances at the Annenberg. New management? I don't know, but they need to rethink things...

Oops! I made a mistake in a previous review. I mistakenly wrote a review about the air museum and put it under the art museum. I also enjoyed a fun morning at this museum. It is well worth a visit. My apologies to others reading my previous review.

As a local there is always a unique traveling exhibit, along with its permanent history on Mid-Century Modernism.

We were disappointed the museum was closed this vista, but on our previous trips have been very impressed with the quality and variety of exhibits. A must see for art enthusiasts

I took some out-of-town visitors here in January. Had no/lows expectations. It blew me - and my bc guests - away. Some of the western art was schmaltzy but overall the quality was goof. The $15 entry fee can be avoided on the secon d Sunday of each month and on Thursday's from 4:00 - 8:00?

Wow what a treasure Palm Springs holds. Selected works on loan from the Weiner family. We were told to visit this museum during our visit and we loved it.

It is a beautiful building. Great assortment of fine arts, but mostly more current and contemporary. Enjoyed very much.

I was disappointed in this museum. Despite not being a typical museum person, I was intrigued to see this one because of all the beautiful art and colours of Palm Springs. Sadly, it is just a typical art museum. I would have liked to see more of a Palm Springs flavour.
