Museum
“The Kern River Valley was originally inhabited by the indigenous Tubatulabal and Kawaiisu people. There are even some pictographs sites still in the area. This little museum and cultural center on the shore of Isabella Lake has some interesting artifacts and newer crafts/artwork. Check for some occasional events. They serve tasty Indian tacos on the weekend. Fun for kids too.”
