The High Desert Museum is great for the entire family! The displays are interesting, varied and very well done. I like the combination of inside and outside things to see as well as planned activities like the raptor show and otter feedings.

We loved the ranch and sawmill. Inside exhibits were great. Loved all the sculptures scatterred throughout. A lot of thought went into the exhibits. Highly recommend.

Lots to do here. Very interesting exhibits about the high desert. I really enjoyed seeing the bird of prey talks and photographed the bald eagle and owls. I was looking forward to the otter exhibit but it was closed. There's lots to do and learn here, I would plan on staying at least two hours. This way you can squeeze in two lectures. Do check the schedule of talks before so you can make the most of your trip.

Great suggestion on checking the daily schedule to fit in some lectures or wildlife encounters while viewing the rest of the exhibits. Thanks for the great review, too.
