Whether you're three or 93, there's something for everyone at the High Desert Museum.
See birds of prey, the porcupine exhibit, a bobcat and more. Check out our collection of desert dwellers in the Desertarium. Visit with living history characters at the 1904 Miller Family Ranch. Explore High Desert history and culture in our permanent exhibits. Enjoy watching the river otters in their newly renovated Autzen Otter Exhibit. The Museum is set on 135 beautiful wooded acres just south of Bend. It's no wonder the Museum is ranked the #1 thing to do in Bend by TripAdvisor.
Join us to celebrate the High Desert Rendezvous, our annnual kick-up-your-heels fundraiser on Saturday, August 26. This evening event is also the last chance to bid on artwork in the Art of the West exhibition.
We have a lot going on at the Museum this spring including new exhibits, lectures, kids camps, special events and more.
