To anyone visiting the Imperial Valley Desert Museum, it becomes immediately clear that the Imperial Valley is a place rich in history and culture extending back tens of thousands of years — if not longer.

The evidence and lessons of that history are all around us, in the art, tools, and sites still preserved in the landscapes of our deserts and mountains. Together, they embody the stories and knowledge of the region’s first peoples, the Kumeyaay.
