  • Museum of Latin American Art
    While wandering the Museum of Latin American Art's permanent collection of works?from artists native to 20 Latin American countries?it might come as a surprise that the space was once home to a roller-skating rink and a silent-movie studio. Its transformation into one of the country's only museums dedicated to modern and contemporary Latin American art was the work of physician, philanthropist, and patron of the arts Dr. Robert Gumbiner. He acquired the properties and founded the museum in 1996, revamping the Hippodrome into galleries alive with Latin American music, paintings, and video. Since that time, the museum has doubled in size, adding a 15,000-square-foot sculpture garden and expanding its collection to include masters such as Rufino Tamayo, Roberto Sebasti?n Matta, Los Carpinteros, and Tunga. The site now serves as a beacon of Latin American culture, showcasing artists who made names for themselves in their own countries but may not be well known in the United States. Beyond the eye-catching exhibitions, which have been featured in the Los Angeles Times, the museum offers educational programs and events such as concerts, film showings, and children?s art camps. Each is an outgrowth of the museum?s mission to stimulate the intellect and cultivate an appreciation for Latin America?s contributions to the world of art.

  • Rancho Los Alamitos Museum and Foundation
    Rancho Los Alamitos enjoys a spot on the National Register of Historic Places for a couple reasons—the site is the birthplace of the native Tongva people, and it has also played an important role in local history since 1790. That’s the year Manuel Nieto took control of a 300,000-acre parcel of land as a reward for serving the Spanish crown on an expedition to California. Over the years, the land saw subdivision—in 1833, it was divvied up among Nieto’s heirs into five ranchos, some 25,500 acres becoming Rancho Los Alamitos. Around this time, the Nietos erected a still standing adobe house, most likely for ranch staff and horses. Fast-forward nearly a hundred years and Florence Bixby is cultivating a lush garden. From native plants and cacti to geraniums and roses, her garden incorporated aspects of ranch life without fully relinquishing a European vibe. Along with that garden, vestiges of the Tongva Village and the homestead’s former inhabitants live on today next to a renovated Rancho Center and Barns Area. The ranch is still home to barnyard animals—chickens, rabbits, horses—and thanks to Bixby’s heirs, the 7.5 remaining acres of Nieto’s once-colossal estate now welcome the public with exhibits about its history and that of the Tongva tribe.

  • Historical Society of Long Beach
    In the early 1960s, the Long Beach Kiwanis Club realized their community's history was slipping away, unpreserved. So they took matters into their own collective hands by founding the Historical Society of Long Beach with a museum in Bixby Knolls. The organization's staff went to work collecting photographs, documents, and other artifacts that chronicle Long Beach's past. To date, society members past and present have assembled around 27,000 photographic prints, 3,000 slides, and 1,400 volumes of newspapers covering events from as far back as 1897. The society also maintains a collection with maps, artifacts, and even interviews of notable citizens. Rotating exhibits grant peeks into this historical collection. Historical Society of Long Beach also hosts special events, including an annual history tour of the city?s two oldest cemeteries, one of which is a favorite vacation spot for the world's richest ghosts, special conferences, and First Fridays.

  • STAR Eco Station
    The STAR Enrichment Center and Star Eco work in tandem to enrich the lives of children, adults, and animals. When animals are rescued from dangerous living situations or seized from the hands of smugglers, STAR Eco Station provides them with second chances at peaceful lives. But the facility doesn't just serve as a haven for more than 200 rescued animals. Perhaps just as importantly, it also educates the public as an environmental science museum. During public tours, guides lead guests through exhibits of rescued exotic animals, such as parrots, pythons, and wildcats, while explaining the habits, history, and New Year's resolutions of each creature. The recipient of multiple awards from media and government agencies, STAR Eco Station also provides educational outreach programs to more than 40 California school districts and works in concert with conservation organizations such as the US Fish and Wildlife Service, Paw Project, and Heal the Bay. At the STAR Enrichment Center in Beverlywood, learning enrichment takes center stage for adults and children alike. Here, dedicated teaching professionals offer courses in STEAM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math), child development, visual and media art, and language. Through courses that range from pre-natal workshops to parent and child classes, the center has earned a reputation for hosting engaging curriculum for all ages. The Enrichment Center is also home to the STAR Prep Academy and STAR Preschool.

  • The Museum of Jurassic Technology
    The Museum of Jurassic Technology There’s almost no way to prepare for what lies within the miniature halls of The Museum of Jurassic Technology. The museum’s stated mission is “the advancement of knowledge and the public appreciation of the Lower Jurassic.” While intriguing, this doesn’t necessarily help to clarify matters. For further elucidation, you can turn to the New York Times, which describes the museum as a place where “some things are invented but seem true [and] others are true but seem invented." The museum’s collection is the definition of eclectic. It includes sculptures mounted on the head of a needle, early 20th-century machines that may or may not be magical, and a fossilized horn that purportedly grew from a woman's head. If that’s not enough to pique your interest, there’s a set of early 20th-century letters mysteriously sent to astronomers at the Mount Wilson Observatory and portraits of Russian cosmonaut dogs from the 1950s. BBC Travel appropriately describes this series of bizarre exhibits as something like a “collaboration between Dave Eggers and David Lynch."
