Mission Statement

A self-supporting 501(c)3 non-profit, The California Museum - home of the California Hall of Fame - engages, educates and enlightens people about California’s rich history and unique contributions to the world through ideas, innovation, the arts and culture. Through interactive and innovative experiences, the Museum inspires visitors to dream the California dream and to make their own mark on history.

Description

The California Museum opened in 1998 through a unique partnership with the State of California as a private non-profit institution focused on California history and culture. Under the development of the Secretary of State’s office, the Museum was created to be the public showplace for contents of the the California State Archives.

In 2003, former First Lady Maria Shriver began working with the Museum to expand its vision and mission. In 2004, "California’s Remarkable Women" opened as the first of her many collaborative efforts with the Museum. Since then, the Museum’s exhibitions have continued to emphasize stories not presented to reflect all aspects of California’s diverse population and culture, with an emphasis on the contributions of women and under-represented groups.

Volunteers are instrumental in making the Museum experience memorable for over 125,000 visitors each year, in positions ranging from gallery guides, special events, and more. Benefits include free Museum membership after 40 hours of volunteering, a discount in our Museum Store, free event attendance and the opportunity to help the Museum meet its mission to educate, enlighten and inspire visitors with California history, arts and culture.

I attended a volunteer orientation and group interview, but I wasn't selected as a volunteer at the time.
