Take your kids on a short drive from Golden Village Palms for a fun learning experience of history and science. Discover Hemet's deep-seated roots in Native American history at the Western Science Center.

During the excavation of Hemet's Diamond Valley Lake in 1995, the site unexpectedly turned into an archaeology and paleontology dig, unearthing artifacts from early Native American settlers. There were bones and skeletons of extinct mammoths, mastodons, camel, sloth, and long-horned bison among the discoveries. The Western Science Center curates ancient archeological wonders from the region and more.
