    Palm Springs Art MuseumPalm Springs Art Museum Palm Springs, California
    another fabulous museum in the Palm Springs area is their outstanding art museum that began in 1938 and has become the regional art, natural science and performing arts venue for the city and Coachella Valley area. When the museum opened it concentrated on the Colorado Desert region and the original local Native Americans that lived in the area like the Cahuilla people. As time passed, and the museum's collections grew, the focus would continue to be on natural sciences and American Indian collections and programs; and in 1952, the desert wildlife habitat open air natural history museum and botanical garden would become part of it and the name changed to reflect the expansion so that it is now the Palm Springs Desert Museum. In downtown Palm Springs, a new 10,000 square foot building would be constructed to house the museum in 1958 and in 1962, they would enlarge it once more to incorporate the auditorium and new galleries to contain contemporary art exhibitions. Well known local architect, E. Stewart Williams would design a newer 75,000 square foot structure some blocks away that would become another piece of the pie, designed in the modernist style and the old desert wildlife reserve museum would separate itself from the museum conglomerate and open the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens.
