Now Open! New Exhibit on the Tongva People

Our newest exhibit, People of the Earth: Life and Culture of the Tongva, will open on February 9th.

The exhibit will explore the history and cultural influence of the Tongva people, the original residents of the Santa Monica Bay area, who have lived in the area for 7,000 years. The exhibit will display artifacts from everyday life ranging from musical instruments to fishing nets woven from milkweed fiber.

Topics will include community and social structure, use of plants, building methods, and profiles of significant figures. The exhibit will also cover the presence of indigenous people today, and ongoing efforts to bring awareness to the local native population.

Join us this February in welcoming the first new exhibit of 2018!
