The Desert Museum is a repository for artifacts found in the Imperial Valley. Our new 10,000 sq foot facility offers the only curation lab in Imperial County. Email for more information or to submit a curation agreement. To submit an agreement, fill out a general Accessions Agreement or a Long Term Curation Agreement (ownership retained by government agency).


As of December 2013 the Imperial Valley Desert Museum is an approved facility to provide curation services for projects on federal land. We are currently accepting archaeological collections from the Imperial Valley and surrounding regions.
