Borax Mine

Discover This Hidden Gem

Buried deep in the Mojave Desert is one of the biggest and richest deposits of borax on the planet. There, on the rim of our active Borax mine, you will find the Borax Visitor Center: One of the best-kept secrets of the Southern California desert. Built in 1997, the Center tells the story of borax and the local community.

The Center offers an opportunity to explore U.S. Borax’s 150-year history as an American icon and learn about mining today and innovations for tomorrow:

  • Historical and geological exhibits
  • Photo ops
  • Video theater
  • 20 mule team replica


NOTE: Due to California COVID-19 restrictions, the Visitor Center is currently closed (as of 7/22/2021).
