History

The Imperial Valley College Desert Museum Society has been working toward constructing a new museum to house the extensive archaeological collections of the Imperial Valley Community College since the Society was incorporated as a non-profit in January of 1972. After decades of advocating, fundraising, and operating a small museum on the campus of the college, the Society developed a business plan, adopted in October 2006, and completed the construction of a brand new facility in October of 2008. In January 2011 the facility opened with the goal of being an active, community-focused museum.
