Stop by an exquisite museum that will teach you about the art, history, culture, and wildlife of the desert.

This museum is located at a large campus that covers over 100 acres of land and indoor space. Every year, they work hard to take down and create 12 new exhibits for people to see. There are also 11 different permanent exhibits for guests to interact with. One of the exhibits you will see upon parking and walking up to the museum is a genuine forest ranger station that was built in 1933. Outside there is also a sawmill that was built in 1904 and a family ranch that portrays a reenactment of the Miller family and what it must have been like for them back in 1904. There is also an otter exhibit and birds of prey center that are perfect areas for animal enthusiasts.

Indoor permanent exhibits include the Desertarium, Spirit of the West, and By Hand through Memory. These will tell you more about the desert climate and Plateau Native American tribes that inhabited the area. Plus, you will see depictions of an Oregon trail wagon and hard rock mines that brought settlers to the area. Discover the rich American history of the Western United States with your friends and family at the High Desert Museum.
