Public art is a defining quality of life in this desert community. In
addition to the beautiful photos that are possible, be sure to spend time
visiting another attraction, the
Hi-Desert Nature Museum.
Collections and exhibits help visitors relate to the desert's unique natural and historical elements. Natural history dioramas displaying wildlife in the desert, an interactive Kids Korner, a mini-zoo with live desert creatures, a gem and mineral collection, Native American artifacts exhibit and a fossil collection, plus six rotating exhibits related to the local natural and historical theme are scheduled each year. It's truly a gem of and the pride of Yucca Valley.
