Lake Havasu Museum of History

     It doesn’t seem possible that this young city could have a museum of history, but we certainly do!  The museum is privately funded and staffed by volunteers.  It has many exhibits that are professionally presented, not only about our town, but those who came before us in the area.  The mission of the museum is “Preserving the past, illuminating the present and educating the future.”

     The exhibits include information on:

The Chemehuevi Indians

The Mohave Indians

Other early explorers

Mining in the Havasu area

Steamboats on the Colorado River

Parker Dam

Site 6, WWII era and McCulloch era

Robert P. McCulloch and the early years

Recreation

London Bridge history and our ties to England

Desert Nature

Organizations, churches, schools and industries

 

The museum is open Tues-Sat from 10 am to 4 pm, admission is $5.00, free for children under 12 and active military.
