Agua Caliente Cultural Museum is the first Native American museum to be part of the Smithsonian Institution Affiliations Program. This special relationship provides opportunities to share resources in programming, collections, scholarship, and technical expertise -- and entitles the Museum to bring world-acclaimed exhibitions to the Coachella Valley.

To fulfill its mission more fully -- as well as the role of caretaker for the enormous gifts of Native knowledge and history -- and to embrace opportunities to involve a wider audience, planning is underway for the construction of a new 110,000 sq.ft. home for the Museum to be located in heart of Palm Springs on historic Section 14.
As planning for a new Museum moves forward, there is a commitment to the belief that knowledge is a tool for empowerment, autonomy, and the proper stewardship of the land and culture. Just as it was the role of Tribal elders to hold and pass on traditions, this world-class Museum will serve as a new kind of Tribal elder.

Preserving the past, documenting the present, and nurturing culture for the future, Agua Caliente Cultural Museum is a place to teach new generations the important lessons that have come down through the ages --to cultivate relationships, create partnerships, and share resources for the preservation and well-being of the entire community.
