Exquisite photographs of California’s wildflowers bring awareness to the beauty of the Golden State – as well as to the dangers facing our natural habitats from climate change. This exhibition by Rob Badger and Nita Winter originated at the San Francisco Public Library and is traveled by Exhibit Envoy.

Enjoy our newly expanded local history exhibit! Dive into the stories of your city, from the original stewards of the land, the Cahuilla, to the homesteaders, ranchers, and dreamers looking for a desert oasis.
This special exhibit will be up through the 2021-2022 season. Thanks to the generous donations of members of the Kennedy family to the La Quinta Historical Society, we are able to preserve and experience a glimpse of life on the ranch with this influential family.
The La Quinta Historical Society is a volunteer, non-profit service organization dedicated to preserving and promoting the rich multicultural history of La Quinta through:
La Quinta Historical Society strives to touch all ages from Youth to Seniors, socio-economic and multi-ethnic groups, community residents and area visitors, in an effort to link the present, the past and the future with the treasured history of La Quinta.
The La Quinta Museum showcases La Quinta’s history and cultural arts through displays on two floors. There is a diorama of a Cahuilla Indian village and another depicting native animals. Photos of the early resorts remind us of the attraction of the desert early on. The community room exhibits a 32 foot long mural of La Quinta highlights painted by Andre Blanche. While you’re there stop in the Museum Store, the place to shop for books about the area and many unique items, some created by local artists.
The La Quinta Museum is a Cultural Museum with two exhibit galleries. Gallery 1 is local history featuring the Cahuilla Indians, The Desert Club and The La Quinta Hotel. Gallery 2 features new revolving exhibits that change every 3 to 4 months.
