Much Ado about the Muzeo

October 01, 2018

One of Anaheim’s most interesting attractions, the Muzeo Museum and Cultural Center features a myriad of permanent cultural and historical displays, along with temporary art exhibits honoring Anaheim’s cultural heritage. Located in the 1908 Carnegie Library building, the Muzeo is a treasure trove, featuring artifacts that together weave a fascinating true story of the history of Anaheim and the area that surrounds it. Visitors can browse and peruse such treasures of the past as ancient fossils, vintage citrus-farming implements, winery items from the 19th century, an array of miscellany from Anaheim’s founders, and assorted mementos from Disneyland and other momentous area sites. “Anaheim: A Walk through Local History” is on permanent display, and upcoming exhibits include a holiday model train exhibit opening in November that features the history of trains in Southern California, and the ever-popular annual Muzeo TrashARTist Challenge. Additional programs offer lectures and in-person visits with authors, such as “Open Book with Selma Mann and Mary Alice Sutherland” on October 25. So, whether you’re a history buff, a vintage collector, or just curious, you’ll find the Muzeo is well worth a visit.
