Founded in 1938, the Palm Springs Art Museum (formerly the Palm Springs Desert Museum) is the largest cultural institution in the Coachella Valley, featuring compelling art exhibitions, a vast permanent collection, and the 433-seat Annenberg Theater, all in a 150,000 square foot, architecturally-significant building. It is the only major art museum located between Los Angeles and Phoenix.
The museum’s permanent art collection features 19th, 20th, and 21st century works focusing on contemporary California art, classic western and Native American art; Mesoamerican art, Mexican art, and European modern art; glass studio art, American mid-twentieth century architecture, and American photography.
In addition, the Annenberg Theater (located on the Lower Level) keeps an eclectic calendar that includes Broadway, cabaret, jazz, classical, opera, dance and speakers in the entertainment industry. The Museum offers art classes, special events, lectures, films, two sculpture gardens, cafe and museum store filled with unique items you won’t find anywhere else. Visit us today!
