About Los Altos History Museum

We feature three-to-four changing history exhibits a year in each building, and have several permanent history exhibits on display. The museum is blessed with a strong and active volunteer network, and programs many lectures, events and special events throughout the year. The annual operating budget of over $400,000 is funded by individual donations, special events, grants, bequests, membership, an active rental events program and gift store.
