This outpost of the main museum is perfect for a short visit. It has a beautiful sculpture garden in the back with soothing landscaping. The interior featured small galleries with nicely curated areas. It took about an hour to go through. Very oriented towards sculpture pieces. Quick enough to be interesting for younger children.

This small, but great museum offers a great collection of art. The permanent collection is often supplemented with traveling art which means there's always something new to see. The museum includes a very nice gift shop with interesting items, most at reasonable prices. The staff, docents and volunteers will make your visit a special one.

I'm not a huge fan of contemporary art but the special exhibits here were extremely well done. I especially liked the one for glass which has some pretty amazing pieces. There is a small but nice collection of western and native items as well. Parking is easy or walking over is even easier if you're staying in the heart of Palm Springs. This was a nice excursion during the heat of the day. I'd definitely do a repeat visit here for another special exhibit.

We are members of the PS Art Museum and thought we'd give the satellite museum a try. The art inside the gallery is not that inspiring, although I see that they were trying to make a point with their installation. The outside sculpture garden was lovely to walk around, and the best part of the museum. I am not writing this place off yet, I think their next installation will be better.

For a bit of culture and to get away from all the shopping and eating definitely go to this museum. The building is very impressive, the art incredible and inspiring.
