Having passed the Dean-Edward Museum on our way up to pick blackberries, when the crop was less than expected, we had time to stop at this hidden gem. A high school volunteer led us through antiquities curated into parlors and libraries. The gardens are beautiful...More

I used to be a docent at this museum some years ago when I was going to UCR. As such, I got to tour all of the museum's nooks and crannies. It is amazing that such a collection has been accumulated and it should be...More

This rather small museum is packed with a large variety of interesting items which are well-displayed in several rooms on two floors.. There are docents for a tour or to just answer questions. You can also stroll in the gardens and admire how well they...More

A fantastic hidden gem museum slightly off the beaten path in Cherry Valley (just outside of Beaumont). The museum is built as if it were a house and is furnished in European, English, and Asian styles. They have an exhibition room with a rotating exhibit....More

It seems 1/2 hour away in Palm Springs very few people know of this small museum. Beautifully displayed with mostly fine European and Asian antiques, it's well worth the visit. The museum rests on scenic grounds which are often rented out for weddings and such....More

I recently revisited this fine, formerly private decorative arts museum in Cherry Valley (10 minutes from Banning/Beaumont, CA) and found it much as I remembered from 25 years ago - a jewel. Now managed by Riverside County, the collection is strikingly unusual. With just a...More

My husband was a close friend of the owner of this house, before it was donated to the State. The collection of antiques is quite phenomenal in such a small museum. It is well worth a stop

This isn't the Beaumont you are thinking of, as it is above the town in an area of open fields and horses. The museum is full of furniture so special it qualifies as art. It is a lovely stop on your way through the pass,...More
