Coachella Valley History Museum
The 1926 adobe building that houses the museum was the home of Dr. Smiley and his wife. The Smileys were on their way to California when their car broke down. Since a doctor was needed in the area and the Smileys needed money they settled in and decided to stay. The museum complex includes a history museum in the house, a two room schoolhouse and a date museum. Farm, blacksmith and railroad equipment is on display outside.
The ramp into the museum is very steep. The museum interior and the grounds are accessible. The schoolhouse and date museum have ADA compliant ramps and are accessible.
RVs will fit in the parking lot across the street from the museum. Museum
