High Desert Museum

The High Desert Museum is located just three miles south of Bend, Oregon, about 45 minutes from Black Butte Ranch. With a chance to get up close to wild high desert animals—from a bobcat, lynx and fox to otters and porcupines to owls, eagles, and plenty of reptiles—and interactive educational exhibits about the history of Central Oregon, the High Desert Museum is an ideal activity for the entire family!

The facility includes both indoor and outdoor exhibits with scenic trails, so whether you’re here in summer or winter, you won’t be left wanting.
