  • A little museum full of historical facts of living near and in Death Valley. We were surprised to find so much very interesting information and enjoyed our stay very much!  more »
  • Old photographs, artifacts, fossils, and historical curios; there is a little bit of everything here. They even have a hands-on dynamite detonator. The man who works here is also very knowledgeable about getting around Death Valley and can be very helpful in planning your visit. Admission is free, they depend on donations to keep operating. Note that the museum does not have restrooms. You have to go next door to the saloon.
  • The people at the counter gave us the most AMAZING summary of what to expect during our visit to Death Valley. Thank you much! So if you visit, buy something!
