The Palm Springs Art museum architecture and design center is a great place to visit. The building itself shows the influence of design in Palm Springs residences. There are a number of informative exhibits that add interest to any visit to the Coachella Valley.

The building is a mid-century bank and a wonderful building. The museum featured two artists. The descriptions were very informative and the sculptures were nice. Only wish there was more to see
