Learn the history of Compton

Learn the fascinating history of the city of Compton on December 7th at 1pm.  Robert Lee Johnson, who wrote an Arcadia book about the history will be speaking about this city’s rather unknown history.  Compton was originally part of the Rancho San Pedro land grant so the museum is pleased to host this talk.  There will be a talk, Q&A, then a light reception afterwards.

Volunteer Open House

Join us for our December 7th volunteer open house at 11am.  Learn about all of the great volunteer opportunities and how you can give back to the community.  We have opportunities for all interests and ages.  For students we do offer service learning hours so learn more at this fun volunteer open house.

Father Serra Celebrates 300 years on November 16th

Join us on November 16th from 12pm to 3pm as we celebrate Father Serra’s 300th birthday.  There will be activities for all ages, music and dancing with the Yesteryears Dancers, a presentation by Father Serra and of course, birthday cake.  We hope you can come out for this momentous event.

Candle Making Workshop Tomorrow at the Museum

Tomorrow, Saturday (November 2nd) is our Fall candle making workshop.  Learn the steps to make your own candles at home.  We will provide the materials and instructions and you just need to bring your imagination.  Everyone will get to make a candle and learn the basic steps so you can make candles at home.  The workshop starts at 1pm.  We hope to see you there.
