    Palm Springs Art Museum

    101 North Museum Drive, Palm Springs, CA, United States
    31 reviews

    Super fun and unique modern art museum in the heart of Palm Springs. This museum features some of the works of Warhol and Picasso but the more notable and interesting pieces of art are from the lesser known artists. Definitely worth checking out while in town - be sure to look our for the elderly couple on the third floor ...

    Downtown Palm Springs is a lot of fun to walk around in the evening, exploring the shops, grabbing a bite to eat, and definitely having dessert. The daytime is ok, if it isn't too hot.
