Palm Springs Art Museum#4 in Best Things To Do in Palm Springs
The Palm Springs Art Museum, which was founded in 1938, contains a stunning collection of works, including pieces by big names like Andy Warhol and Marc Chagall. You'll also find an ever-changing list of rotating exhibits, which have included studies of impressionism, contemporary sculpture, pop and graphic art, and architecture. The facility's permanent collection is not to be missed, either.
According to former visitors, the Palm Springs Art Museum is a "cultural oasis" with "wonderful" exhibits. Many also appreciated its small size, adding that it's easy to see everything in an hour or two. Plus, the property offers free entry every Thursday between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
The Palm Springs Art Museum, located on North Museum Drive in downtown Palm Springs, is open on Thursdays from noon to 8 p.m. and Friday through Tuesday between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., though hours may change by season. Should you arrive on a day when entrance fees apply, expect to pay $12 per adult and $10 for each senior; current members of the military and visitors 18 and younger are always admitted for free. In addition to the property's exhibits, all ticketholders have access to restrooms, a gift shop and a cafe, as well as complimentary permanent collection tours, which last one hour and are generally offered at 2 p.m. Free parking is also provided.
