Step into history…

Heritage Square Museum transports visitors to the end of the 19th century, when California was a fledgling state and the former cow town El Pueblo de Los Angeles began shaping itself into the metropolis it is today.

On weekends, tours take visitors on an exploration of Southern California history, architecture and culture as interpreted through our historic structures. At the Perry Gallery, thought-provoking and amusing exhibits can be seen year-round. In addition, Heritage Square Museum comes to life throughout the year for special living history events with museum interpreters in full period clothing. There is always something happening at the museum, that is why we like to say that Heritage Square Museum is “Where History Comes Alive!”


Heritage Square Museum is located at 3800 Homer Street in Los Angeles off the 110 Fwy, 10 minutes Northeast of Downtown.
