Fodor's Expert Review Children's Discovery Museum of the Desert

Rancho Mirage Museum/Gallery

This museum features more than 80 hands-on exhibits, including a miniature rock-climbing area, a magnetic sculpture wall, make-it-and-take-it-apart projects, a rope maze, and an area for toddlers. Kids can make music on oversize drums, chimes, and a metallophone, work as chefs in the museum's pizza parlor, assemble their own cars on a racetrack, and build pies out of arts and crafts supplies.
