“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

It was cloudy and cold one day, so I walked over to the P.S. Art Museum. I was so glad I did. This little museum is not so little, and the art was excellent. I would compare it to the MOMA in New York. Had a great time.

“Very Intriguing Art Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

The collection here is doable in a day, with a concentration on contemporary pieces and southwestern art. We really enjoyed a glass exhibit that was being featured while we were there. Highly recommend checking this museum out.

“When Small Museums Have Big Worlds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

This museum really is a big huge museum contained in two small museums in two locations. The collections are noteworthy by anyone's standards, the exhibitions are well curated, usually cutting edge and quite thought provoking. The cafe is great space, lovely atmosphere, but for a museum of this caliber you would expect something more. It would be great of there were some real chef-ing happening in that kitchen. As it is the sandwiches and paninis are great, I just wish it used it's magnificent setting to produce an interesting cafe menu..

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We spent a lovely afternoon at the museum, and saw several interesting visiting installations. The permanent exhibits alone were worth the trip. The museum's architecture and layout are very pleasing and user friendly, and it's a short walk off the major shopping district on Palm Canyon. You don't have to be "artsy" to enjoy this museum.
