“A Taste of La Quinta's History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

This small museum in Old Town offers a fascinating glimpse of La Quinta's past. The old photographs of the native Americans and their artwork and the information about the early vacationing Hollywood stars fascinated me. The exhibits and browsing in the gift shop take just the right amount of time for a vacationer to complete. Well done, La Quinta!

“THE TINY TRAIN THAT COULD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014 via mobile

What an absolute GEM in the desert. We found our way there after a few minor misses and turns and got there 20 mins before closing time. We were received in with open arms and were given great guidance for an in sight of the past and present of LA QUINTA. The displays
are housed in a beautiful setting and are most informative and interesting. DEFINITELY, MOST DEFINITELY worth a visit!

“Helps to understand the history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2014

Such a quaint little place with fascinating glimpses into the past of the area, based on old movies and home movies.

Worth a visit to take you back to times long since gone by, which seniors will just love to reflect about.

“Gem of the Desert ~ Great little Museum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

Loved visiting this museum! Hidden away in Old Town La Quinta it's worth the visit. Great staff and plenty to see. Thank you Anne Phillips, the Museum Manager for showing us around and telling us all about the museum. Great artifacts and crafts made by local artists. The museum has two floors and is closed on Monday's. We enjoyed the movie they show about how life was in the 1940's. The gift shop is very nice and offers unique gift items. We enjoyed it very much and highly recommend visiting here!
