Mission: The Santa Monica History Museum’s mission is to collect, preserve and share the history and culture of Santa Monica for generations to come.

Vision: The Santa Monica History Museum is the steward of the rich history of the Santa Monica Bay area. We are committed to enriching our community by providing public access to our extensive collection with interpretive exhibitions, public programs, community partnerships and through archival and research services.

“This museum is an important repository for the Santa Monica Bay Area. Its historical collections serve the educational, archival and research mission of the museum.”
