Great Outdoor Art

Didn't get a chance to visit inside — but we enjoyed viewing the outside art installations. Everywhere around the schoolhouse and the nearby 29 Palms Inn is filled with creativity. I look forward to a future visit when we can go inside.

Semi-interesting collection of artifacts and nice gift store
Oct 2019
The mining implements were interesting, as were the household items. I picked up some nice earrings in the gift shop.

It was really nice seeing their new addition and reading the history of 29 Palms. I also met up with some people from my childhood.

Museum

I've been here a few times. The museum is filled to the brim with historical items. It is truly the things people lived with here as this area became a city. There is a nice gift shop too, and nothing is terribly expensive.

Do not expect too much. This is a small-town musuem. Volunteers are Super-friendly. Exhibits are well presented and interesting

Small Piece of History

I loved my visit here!

While I wouldn't say this is a must-see attraction, if you are in the Twentynine Palms and want to learn more about the area, this is a great place to visit! A great insight into the early days of this town and the homesteaders. It let me understand the story behind the many shacks and cabins that populate the landscape outside of town.

Also, the two ladies that were volunteering there were very helpful and friendly. I had a great chat with them and made me think very highly of the people that live in this community.

I bought a mug as a souvenir and whenever I use it I warmly remember Twentynine Palms. :)

History of 29 Palms
May 2017
This is a very nice museum dedicated to the history of 29 Palms. They moved the old school house to this location across the street from the Art Gallery.

Great Little Museum
Dec 2017 • Couples
This museum touches on the history of the city. It's built inside the former one-room schoolhouse. An outside building allows you to view the area's first public transportation--the Hastie Bus. Great gift shop too. Even locals shop here for the perfect gift.
