While traveling through California's Mojave Desert why not take a break from your travels and visit the Twenty Mule Team Museum. Conveniently located in downtown Boron our Visitor's Information Center offers a wide variety of posters, postcards, rock samples, jewelry and other unique gift items. On August 4, 1984, dedication ceremonies were held and the Twenty Mule Team Museum was officially opened to the public. All of the mining artifacts and equipment, antique machinery, one-of-a-kind art work and unique displays depicting the early years of the history of Boron have been generously donated to the museum through the continued support of the community. The Twenty Mule Team Museum's staff and it long-time director, Barbara Pratt, are all volunteers who's only compensation is the satisfaction of preserving a way of life many have forgotten. Their dedication to the museum and their sense of community pride and are a testament to the spirit of small town life found in the community of Boron.
