Whether you're three or 93, there's something for everyone at the High Desert Museum.
See birds of prey, the porcupine exhibit, a bobcat and more. Check out our collection of desert dwellers in the Desertarium. Visit with living history characters at the 1904 Miller Family Ranch. Explore High Desert history and culture in our permanent exhibits. The Museum is set on 135 beautiful wooded acres just south of Bend. It's no wonder the Museum is ranked the #1 thing to do in Bend by TripAdvisor.
We have a lot going on at the Museum this spring including new exhibits, the popular Natural History Pub Series, lectures, kids camps, special events and more. The ever popular outdoor flight show Raptors of the Desert Sky will return May 28 and run through Labor Day weekend.
Please note that our otters are currently off exhibit while their home is being renovated. View our progress at Autzen Otter Exhibit, and help make their new habitat wonderful both for the otters and visitors.
