The Kern River Valley Historical Society is celebrating over 50 years of operation! Our mission is to preserve and communicate the rich and colorful history of this region. The Kern Valley Museum in downtown Kernville, next to the Post Office, welcomes visitors to explore our rich history.

What's Happening

This room houses a large collection of identified minerals and gems.  Viewing this excellent display of geological wonders could inspire a whole new generation of rock hounds.

Displayed also, are a collection of guns, an Indian Display, and a Kiosk with several DVD presentations of mining history and Valley tours.
