The staff member who was working in January was extremely informative about this museum. The items shown are well presented and in a well thought out order. Unfortunately all the out side buildings were locked up. Well worth taking the time to enjoy this hidden gem

This is a MUST SEE. They have done an exceptional job with having things is displays that are marked and readable. There is a chronological order of the valley from the Colorado river to the people who developed the Imperial Valley into the greatest vegetable producers in the USA. Many displays of historical items that are not around anymore. They have broken down the immigrants from the countries they came from and the their families have been contributing items ever since. They also display the native animals that live there and have a great cattle/cowboy section. Many antique machinery items are outside. Great local Veterans section. However the are closed during the hot summer months (June-August). Open Tues-Sat 10A-4P and Sun 12p-5p. You will be very happy to go there.

Be sure to check out this well planned museum. Full of local items from pioneers in the early 1900's to now, every nationality is represented here that settled in Imperial Valley. A bit hard to find but worth it.
