February 22, 2024 - Thursday - Today we were in Palm Springs, CA to see the newest museum in town, the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum.  It just opened late last year after almost two years of construction.  It has almost 48,000 square feet of permanent exhibit space on a 5.8-acre site.  It is dedicated to the Tribe’s collection of art and artifacts and it has a 360-degree animation theater telling the creation story.

Separating the museum from the spa is a wonderful area called the "Oasis Trail."  It replicates the Indian Canyons that are owned by the tribe.

These are shell beads that were found when this site was being excavated.  Note that the age of the beads is between 7,300 and 8,400 years old.

This waterfall is a recreation of the waterfall at the end of Tahquitz Canyon.

This is the first slot machine owned by the tribe in 1995.

The museum has gallery space for rotating exhibits and is now exhibiting photographs by the Kiowa photographer Horace Poolaw.

The museum is beautiful and is a wonderful tribute to the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians.

Before the museum, we had an early  brunch at the Farm.

I had their "Brioche French Toast" with Swiss cheese, crispy bacon, and a strawberry coulis.

Judy had their "Crispy Bacon Benedict" with a side of berries and both dishes were excellent.
