The San Bernardino County Museum installed temporary exhibits in Victorville's courthouse lobbies and hallways to honor the U.S. bicentennial in 1976. These exhibits were the catalyst for the formation of a nonprofit museum, chartered in 1978. Displays remained in the courthouse for more than a decade until the Victor Valley Museum bVictor Valley Museum exhibituilding was constructed in Apple Valley; it opened in 1992. The museum operated as a not-for-profit entity sustained by many community volunteers. In 2010, with the support of San Bernardino County First District Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt, the Victor Valley Museum returned to its roots, becoming a branch of the San Bernardino County Museum system.

Exhibits in the Victor Valley Museum are organized around the theme, "Discover Your Own Backyard." Visitors will enjoy learning about the archaeology and anthropology, history, geology and paleontology, and biological sciences of the high desert.
