Originally a barley field, Van Nuys became a prosperous center of City Government, agriculture and industry. Come explore what remains to be appreciated: original 1911 buildings hidden beneath modern facades, first churches, a civic center with many special revelations, one of the main hubs of social and official activity, the Women's Club building, Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monuments #201, #202, and #911, and National Register of Historic Places Monument #2509.

Hello to all space fans...

Today is the historic 50th anniversary when Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin and Michael Collins splashed down in the Pacific Ocean.

The Museum had the pleasure of having space author and journalist Rod Pyle speak in May.

He has written about 15 books on space and we have two of his books in stock. We have some that have been signed too.

PLEASE come on over to The Museum SFV today or in the near future and purchase these books, enjoy and share with others for many years to come.



Please purchase this book for $29.99.


Please purchase this book for $21.99.

Rod Pyle was generous enough to donate all proceeds to The Museum.

The Museum would like to sell all of its existing inventory and purchase additional ones for space fans!

Thank you.
