Agua Caliente Cultural Museum, Palm Springs

Agua Caliente Cultural Museum, Palm Springs (must see)

The Agua Caliente Cultural Museum is an association where the culture and history of the Cahuilla peoples are interpreted. It was founded in 1991 and it shows characteristics of this long-established culture in the heart of Palm Springs. The museum exhibits artifacts, jewelry, music and photographs of the indigenous Cahuilla Indians, as well as organizing tours and special events, plus other activities. Now the museum has a mission to build another facility of this kind to extend the tribe's traditions and teach the new generations to share this way of life with others. Their new 100,000 sq ft facility is planned to open in 2020.

Why You Should Visit:
To learn about the beautiful culture, and to get an insight into how early inhabitants were able to live in this desert.
