Dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the scientific, historical, and cultural heritage of the Mojave Desert.
The Mojave River Valley Museum is independent and self-supporting, staffed entirely by volunteers. We have expanded our building to more than 4,000 square feet of museum, including a Gift Shop and a Book Store that carries nearly 500 titles.
Exhibits & Archives
The Museum houses a series of displays and exhibits that portray the history of the Mojave River Valley from the arrival of Father Garces in 1776 on through pathfinders, pioneers, miners, railroads and the present space program.
Our archive of local area newspapers dates back to 1911 and our photo collection contains over 20,000 photos.
We are open from 11 am to 4 pm seven days a week; closing only for major holidays, and admission is always free.
