Fantastic interactive children's museum in the desert. A welcome respite from the usual heat, but a fun treat any time of the year. Best for the younger children, they can touch and play with EVERYTHING!

We love coming here when we visit Palm Desert! My kids absolutely love this Discovery Museum and sometimes we come twice during our visit. They allow you to leave for lunch and come back the same day.
