Modernism Week Architecture Tours


Modernism Week and PS Architecture Tours – Palm Springs’ leading providers of architectural tour services – have teamed up to provide the definitive modern architecture tour experience. Join us for a season-long series of carefully curated small group tours spearheaded by Tripadvisor’s top-rated architectural tour operator, Trevor O’Donnell, and a select team of knowledgeable professional guides.

Our new mini-coach tours offer an in-depth introduction to Palm Springs history and the city’s world-famous collection of midcentury modern homes and buildings. You’ll join up to 20 fellow architecture and design fans for a fun, fascinating exploration of the city’s most beautiful neighborhoods, pausing along the way to learn about outstanding works of architecture by some of America’s most important modernist designers. You’ll also learn about Hollywood celebrities who made many of these homes famous, and enjoy back stories that add life, humor and awe to Palm Springs’ amazing modernist legacy.

Modernism Week is a community supported nonprofit dedicated to education, preservation and appreciation of modernist architecture and design in Palm Springs. When you choose Architecture Tours by Modernism Week, you’re not only choosing the best, you’re helping to preserve and promote modern architecture for generations to come.

We are SO EXCITED about our big move! The Denver Mart‘s Pavilion bldg is larger than the space we’ve had at the National Western – AND, the layout is better, with one large show floor! We also have the option to move the stage into the swanky, carpeted adjoining Plaza Bldg in future years!

AND … Denver Mod is now connected to a HOTEL – The Comfort Inn Central – so get ready for some epic room parties!  And there’s no need to go home!  Immerse yourself in the Mod! Call 303-297-1717 or visit their website at
