Museum of San Fernando Valley
As an educational and cultural institution, we are here to acquire, display, and preserve the artifacts, documents and records of the San Fernando Valley. With the help of residents, businesses, organizations and societies, we will build The Museum collections of historical items, the fine arts and the folk arts for the public to enjoy and for scholars to research.
Through The Museum's current home in western San Fernando Valley in the city of Northridge via interactive exhibits, website, blog, social media, tours for the public, schools and organizations, lectures and performances, Your Museum will share with the world what it means to be part and parcel of the great San Fernando Valley.
The Museum Story
The Museum began in 2005 out of a historic bungalow at L.A. Valley College. For the next three years, we secured some funds through small grants, created some exhibits and offered an array of events.
Several years later The Museum was housed at the Fashion Square mall in Sherman Oaks where thousands of people visited The Museum each month.
In 2014, The Museum moved to its current location in Northridge.
