Self-guided Visits

Youth Education Groups

We are continuing to offer Self-Guided visits for education groups of all kinds (learning pods, homeschool groups, etc.) in which you explore the Museum independently. Book your visit in advance using our Self-Guided Educational Visit form. We do our best to respond to registrations quickly. However, due to the high number of registrations, you will hear from us within a week of the registration submission date. Self-guided visit registrations must be submitted at least two weeks in advance of the requested visit dates.

Self-guided visits may only take place when the High Desert Museum is open to the public.

We offer Self-Guided educational groups an admission rate of $5 per student and $5 per accompanying adult.  Self-Guided Learning Packets are available to help support student exploration during your self-guided visit. During a Self-Guided visit, you may attend any of our daily interpretive talks and programs. Space is very limited for the daily talks and must be reserved at Admissions when you arrive at the Museum.


Face coverings are now optional at the High Desert Museum.

We continue to regularly monitor state and federal agencies to ensure we’re following the most recent guidelines. Present CDC guidance recommends tracking the county’s community COVID-19 level here in making decisions about wearing face coverings. Thank you for helping us support community health!
