A number of the artifacts on display are rare or one-of-a-kind items.

The chalet-style structure was built over famous Piute Butte in the Mojave Desert. The unusual rock-art structure is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Season:
Open weekends Mid September to Mid June, 11 am to 4 pm.

Additional Details:

The museum is closed until Spring 2009. Call 661-942-0662 for more information.

Joshua Cottage features a "touch table" room where everyone, regardless of age, can learn food grinding and processing techniques. Or you can learn how earlier Indian groups started fires using sticks or bow drills.

Next to the museum is a self-guided nature trail, a picnic area, and an outdoor ceremonial arena. Occasionally guest Indian groups perform traditional dances and other programs. There is an annual opening event each fall featuring a traditional ground blessing ceremony. There are also Indian artists demonstrating and selling their work, Indian food, and special activities for children.
