A very useful and informative visitor's center with friendly and helpful staff. A good place to find information on self-guided mid-century modern architecture tours in Palm Springs.

This is a great place to visit upon arriving in Palm Springs. Staff is very helpful and friendly. And there are lots of fun souvenirs! Interesting that the building was originally a gas station in a past life!
