Description

The Victor Valley Museum is a branch of the San Bernardino County Museum and maintains and develops unique cultural and natural science collections related to the High Desert.

Mission

Programs and events at the Victor Valley Museum engage families, children, educators, and people of all ages in educational STEM goals: science, technology, engineering and math. Whether walking through the museum galleries, alongside a prehistoric mammoth or a local hero; finding scavenger hunt artifacts; creating a model of earth, or breaking open geodes to see what?s inside, the Victor Valley Museum has a compelling story for everyone!

History

In 1976, the Victorville Courthouse installed temporary exhibits in its lobbies and hallways to honor the U.S. bicentennial in 1976. These exhibits were the catalyst for the formation of this local nonprofit museum, chartered in 1978. Displays remained in the courthouse for more than a decade until the Victor Valley Museum building was constructed in Apple Valley; and opened in 1992. Today, exhibits in the Victor Valley Museum are organized around the theme, "Discover Your Own Backyard." Visitors enjoy learning about the archaeology and anthropology, history, geology and paleontology, and biological sciences of the high desert.
