If you are not familiar with the area this should be your first stop on the way to your hotel. They have a lot of information and the building is an old gas station remodeled.

Upon arrival, the building and architecture are wonderful .. The restrooms are clean and the center is located at the bottom of the Arial Tram road. Unfortunately, there are two desks at the center. This is a visitor center and a lets make money center. The Visitor Center person, barely looked up, We had to ask if the maps sitting... More

We stopped in after our trip up the Tram. It is right at the turn off off Highway 111. They have a lot of information and some very committed volunteers who have a a lot of knowledge/years. If you are an architectural fan I think that the $5 that they charge for the map or the app of the show... More

We stopped here to pick up the tour map of Albert Frey designed homes. The cost for themap is $5.00 and includes many homes ~ Frey & others that are fine examples of Mid-century Modern design. Don't bother to drive to the southern ones on the map. All are in a gated community that is closed to visitors We also... More

The visitors center is in an architecturally significant building, designed by Albert Frey, that serves as an excellent welcome post to mid-century modern Palm Springs. The staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They have information on tours, sites, hotels, and events: desert trails, celebrity tours, modernism architecture -- they know it all. You'll be glad you stopped in. We... More
