November 1, 2011 - August 2012

Tuesday - Saturday from 10am-4pm

La Quinta Museum


Come and experience pioneer life in early California through the exhibit's artifacts, dioramas, and hands on activities! Imagine the journey westward by viewing a twenty-five foot covered wagon scene; experience California's Gold Rush through the "Gold Fever!" display; and enjoy learning Morse code by sending messages to friends via the working telegraph system -housed in a mock telegraph office and railroad depot! Guests will be able to view various Civil War artifacts, courtesy of the Lincoln Memorial Shrine, including the following items: a sword, musket, and a hand signed document by Abraham Lincoln; and enjoy vignettes of La Quinta's early pioneers.
