Palm Springs Art Museum Reopens Thursday After a Year Closed Due to COVID-19

Following a year-long closure due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Palm Springs Art Museum will welcome back art enthusiasts Thursday.

The museum will initially open on a Thursday-through-Sunday schedule at 25% of capacity and with other coronavirus-related health protocols.

Guests can enjoy the museum’s offerings from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursdays, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the other days.

Admission will be free Thursday and every other Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m. for the rest of the year due to a deal subsidized by the city of Palm Springs.

“The Palm Springs Art Museum is a wonderful cultural attraction in our city with a myriad of diverse and eclectic art on display for our residents and visitors to appreciate and enjoy,” Mayor Christy Holstege said. “The City Council is delighted to support free admission Thursdays, and we encourage everyone to take advantage of all the museum has to offer.”

Free admission is available to all visitors, not just residents, city officials said.

Riverside County recently moved into the less-restrictive red tier of the state’s coronavirus reopening plan, which paved the way for the resumption of many indoor activities, including museum operations.

The museum’s restaurant, Persimmon Bistro & Wine Bar, will additionally serve customers Wednesday through Sunday.

Museum guests will be required to purchase their tickets online before entering and submit to both COVID-related health screenings and temperature checks at the door. Once inside, guests must wear facial coverings and maintain social distance.

The Palm Springs Art Museum’s main museum is located at 101 Museum Drive.
