Been wanting to visit for a long time and were glad we did! The museum is small and quaint but full of information. They have an awesome mineral collection with fossils and gems, also Native American artifacts from the area. Needless to say the also have info on local mining history. The view from the patio is wonderful!

If you need to know about the history of the Rand District, you're in luck.

You're going to find a true desert gem in the "real live ghost town" of Randsburg (Eastern Kern County, California): The Rand Desert Museum.

The capable docents Ann Pruett & Bart Parker oversee a rich collection of memorabilia, historical records, photographs, and mining specimens. You won't be disappointed.

I grew up in Randsburg, never dreaming there would one day be a great place to go to learn about the Rand District's rich, interesting past.

I'm proud of this institution.

For a small museum it was packed full of historical artifacts. Well worth a visit. Make sure to leave a donation to help keep this valuable resource alive.
