The California Heritage Museum is committed to promoting the diversity and rich history of California's heritage through exhibitions, lectures, publications and community events.
The building that houses the California Heritage Museum is as interesting as the exhibits themselves. Built in 1894, and recognized as the first Roy Jones house, the house was moved from its former location in 1979 and named an Official City Landmark. The following year it became home to the California Heritage Museum. There are photos of the extraordinary move in our permanent exhibit.
Volunteers play a vital role in the operation of the Museum. Your time and expertise help advance our mission to advocate for the historic and cultural preservation and education of California’s multi-cultural heritage. We are seeking enthusiastic individuals to introduce local residents and visitors to the museum, our exceptional exhibitions, and our festive community events.
Assisting with tours, events, fundraising and advocacy, is also an opportunity to meet other community members who share your same interests. Although no special experience is required, volunteers should:
After training, docents conduct individual or group tours 1-4 times per month, from 11am to 3:30pm, Wednesdays through Sundays.
