For the price of a donation (whatever you want to give), you can view an impressive collection of area artifacts and pictures, and learn more about local history.

I really enjoyed the visit to this museum. The staff were very helpful and enthusiastically shared their local knowledge with me. The building has an interesting history and there are lots of well price items to purchase including a good selection of books.

Loved the Weed Show in November, a must see for visitors. The volunteers are very knowledgeable of the area and tours can be arranged. You can purchase gifts there also. Walking distance to the 29 Palms Inn for lunch or dinner and the main Art Gallery.
