Giving Tuesday - please support Your Museum of History - Arts and Culture

This Giving Tuesday, please join The Museum SFV in supporting history, art and culture by making a gift today. 

The Museum of the San Fernando Valley offers curated, meaningful exhibits and cultural events throughout the year.  

We are asking for your support to expand our exhibits, both on the interior and exterior of The Museum grounds to further educate Museum members, donors and visitors on the history, art and culture of this valley.

Giving Tuesday, a global opportunity to give back to the organizations and missions you care about most. Public support from people just like you makes our regional museum of history, art and culture continue its mission of educating, preserving and promoting this rich history. At the same time, our visitors bring experiences, stories and artifacts to support this worthwhile organization.
