We saw several different exhibits at the museum during a visit, last November...but, especially LOVED the exhibit displaying the finest Navajo rugs!

We went to the museum for a special exhibit and found it very expensive. The layout is strange and the lighting and explanations could use improvement. There were some nice pieces and the staff was eager to please. Our recommendation is to go on free Thursdays. As for the exhibits, there are a few nice pieces, There isn't any competition in the area, and it does have a good location with free parking, Once is enough.

This small museum really packs it in...I have visited many different museums in my travels and the Palm Springs Art museum is absolutely my favorite. Both the traveling exhibits and also their permanent exhibits are extraordinary...don't miss it when you travel to Palm Springs...absolutely a wonderful place to spend an afternoon

I was not expecting a museum of such fine quality. Some great temporary exhibits while we were in town and the permanent collection is quite impressive. The staff and docents were helpful and the price of admission was fair.
