The Victor Valley Museum features exhibits on the natural history and culture of the high desert.
Semi permanent exhibits include geological and paleontological specimens, Native American artifacts,
and historical objects that tell the story of the development of society and industry in the towns of
the region. Popular annual events include Insectival, Solar Oven Cook-off, and Night at the Museum.
Founded in 1976 to honor the U.S. Bicentennial, the museum originally inhabited the Victorville
Courthouse until moving in 1992 to the current site in Apple Valley.
Since 2010, the Victor Valley Museum has been a branch of the San Bernardino County Museum system.
The Friends of Victor Valley Museum is a volunteer group that helps to support the museum through
memberships and fundraising events.
