The Virgin Valley Heritage Museum, originally known as the Desert Valley Museum, provides visitors information about the local history of Mesquite. Through interesting displays, the Museum is able to illustrate the life and times of this local area. Most of the artifacts found in the Museum date back to 1875 to 1935. The Museum occupies a building built in 1941 by the National Youth Administration. In the earlier time, it served as a hospital and library.

The Museum showcases permanent and changing exhibits that will help visitors visualize the everyday life of the pioneers, settlers, and passers-by in the area during the early times. People can also take a close look at the examined artifacts that provide a background of what the community is today. The Museum features a Media Center, a walking tour picture arrangement, a 1920?s Parlor Room, and historical books for research and reference.

The Museum is open from Tuesday to Saturday, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Group tours are offered and extended hours are allowed as long as there is an appointment.
