A Community Jewel

A memorable setting for special events, the Los Altos History Museum is a impressively rustic, yet refined, three-level, 8200 square-foot building. The vaulted entryway and indoor balcony which encircles the three-story space graciously welcomes guests to an inspiring collection of regionally significant historical artifacts that sit in surroundings of blond polished wood floors, soaring ceilings, and glass door that take in a view of the courtyard.

Nestled amidst majestic heritage oaks and one of the last few remaining apricot orchards of Santa Clara Valley, the grounds and facilities of the Los Altos History Museum provide a captivating backdrop to enjoy and share life’s most significant events and create its most cherished memories.
