Did you know we have nearly all of the Monrovia High School yearbooks in our collection and on view? We also have an eclectic antique telephone collection, as well as natural history artifacts, among many thousands of other things! Prepare to be surprised by what you find!
The Museum has archived over 10,000 artifacts. If you have artifacts you wish to donate that are historically significant to Monrovia you may bring them to the Museum during business hours: Sundays and Thursdays 1:00 to 4:00 PM or call for an appointment at 626-357-9537.
Permanent exhibits created with donated artifacts include:
A shelter or "kizh" built for the Museum by the local Gabrielino-Tongva tribe; and a collection of pictures and artifacts depicting the Monrovia Airport.
This doctor's buggy was used to make house calls in Monrovia; and an exhibit highlighting Monrovia's response during the two World Wars.
