This rather small museum is packed with a large variety of interesting items which are well-displayed in several rooms on two floors.. There are docents for a tour or to just answer questions. You can also stroll in the gardens and admire how well they are kept up. It's difficult to recommend 'length of visit' because depends on whether you... More

A fantastic hidden gem museum slightly off the beaten path in Cherry Valley (just outside of Beaumont). The museum is built as if it were a house and is furnished in European, English, and Asian styles. They have an exhibition room with a rotating exhibit. When we were there, they were showing 11th and 12th century Chinese Pottery. Beautiful. Definitely... More

This is a hidden gem way off the road and unless you look for it. Was build to house a private collection of antiques, books and art. Has a nice rose garden and the tour was great. A place to go to see something different up close.

It seems 1/2 hour away in Palm Springs very few people know of this small museum. Beautifully displayed with mostly fine European and Asian antiques, it's well worth the visit. The museum rests on scenic grounds which are often rented out for weddings and such. There's even a coy pond. if you're in the area well worth the stop.

I recently revisited this fine, formerly private decorative arts museum in Cherry Valley (10 minutes from Banning/Beaumont, CA) and found it much as I remembered from 25 years ago - a jewel. Now managed by Riverside County, the collection is strikingly unusual. With just a $5 entry fee, skipping a visit to the Edward-Dean should be a misdemeanor. A friend... More

My husband was a close friend of the owner of this house, before it was donated to the State. The collection of antiques is quite phenomenal in such a small museum. It is well worth a stop

This isn't the Beaumont you are thinking of, as it is above the town in an area of open fields and horses. The museum is full of furniture so special it qualifies as art. It is a lovely stop on your way through the pass, to or from Palm Springs or beyond. They often have special events so check their... More
