The Museum is open daily from 10 to 5 and its garden open to exploration anytime.  Desert plants, the interactive sundial, the labyrinth made from tufa rocks, the old bell, the pond-less water source for birds and small critters and, still to come, a habitat enclosure for desert tortoises are some of the features made possible through Eagle Scout projects.  Not only do their much appreciated efforts enhance visitors’ experience of the Museum but also underscore its value as an important resource to our community.

 The mission of the Maturango Museum is to preserve, interpret, and develop an appreciation for the natural and cultural history of the Northern Mojave Desert through research and education in the natural and physical sciences, and to promote the arts.
