My husband dragged us to the High Desert Museum. On paper it looked very boring to me. I'm not a fan of American history and I don't really care that much about deserts. So I was prepared to spend a lot of time just sitting around while he looked at the exhibits.
I am pleased to say that I couldn't have been more wrong! This place is so much fun! There were live animals, interactive exhibits, indoor and outdoor exhibits, a beautiful gift shop and more! My son especially loved the train exhibit and the mine exhibit. I loved the gift shop and the live animal exhibits. My husband enjoyed all the history lessons. We all had a nice time walking to the outdoor exhibits. I have never smelled a pine forest before and it smelled amazing. Living history exhibits were a unique feature for us. My son enjoyed asking questions of the ladies "living" in the log cabin.
Overall we had a wonderful time and I would not hesitate to visit again if we're in the area.
