If you’re just passing through, you might want to learn a bit about the territory before you get off the beaten path.

If you’re already a resident here, then by all means, join us as a Member of the Lucerne Valley Museum Association, and help us aim for goals that are in our future. We have a giant wish list. But first we need more families with vision that can see us build a museum structure to house our collections — a place to teach our children about our heritage — a safe place to house the cultural changes that we’ve experienced — a place where we can share with others what Lucerne Valley has to offer.

We could use your help.
