The Art Gallery offers a break from the heat with some interesting pieces. Particularly liked the modern work and the glass display. The sculpture garden is relaxing.

We had an hour to kill before heading for the airport so my family stopped by the museum. It is right next to downtown Palm Springs and there is free parking. It is a lovely, open space that has some of the classics (Picasso, Chagall)...More
