Tour begins at the main entrance of the Palm Springs Art Museum (101 Museum Drive).

Join us for a half-mile stroll between two of Palm Springs’ most iconic Desert Modern destinations: the Palm Springs Art Museum and the Architecture and Design Center, both envisioned by E. Stewart Williams, one of the desert’s most prolific and well-known architects.

This tour captures the essence of Palm Springs, starting with its early roots in the late 1800s, to the midcentury modern craze and the 21st century-vibe that’s part of our culture today. From our fabled pioneers, imaginative architects and three powerful women who helped start it all, you’ll be fascinated by our ever-changing glamorous resort that continues to be populated by artists, movie stars, wealthy business titans, the Aqua Caliente Indians, and LA hipsters.

Price: $25 per person (includes admission to Palm Springs Art Museum and A+D Center) (14 persons maximum).
