For 40 years, the High Desert Museum has been an educational and cultural resource for our region. As a trusted community anchor, the Museum promotes lifelong learning, fosters empathy and understanding, and builds connection. We are accredited by the American Alliance of Museums and are a Smithsonian Affiliate. In recognition of the Museum’s commitment to our community, we were awarded a 2021 National Medal for Museum and Library Service—the highest honor in our field.
The High Desert Museum’s programming and long-term goals are grounded in our community. Throughout the pandemic, we continued to provide memorable experiences that promoted joy and inspiration. To remain relevant and responsive to our rapidly changing community landscape, the Museum is reimagining how we engage with families and discovering new ways of providing enriching educational experiences. This is only possible because of generous donors like you!
