Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
To preserve and protect the history of Burbank and share it with the public.
We have over 20,000 square feet of museum space dedicated to showing the public all the wonders of Burbank (AND California and even our nation) from the 19th century to today. If you've seen the "little blue Victorian house" on Olive Avenue, that is part of our museum! Behind the house is a very large museum with even more artifacts on display. It is truly fascinating, educational yet fun! A hidden gem right here in Burbank!. Located in George Izay (Olive) Park right next to the Creative Arts Center, we have free parking behind the park, on Clark Street. We are open to the public from 1 to 4 pm Saturdays and Sundays and admission is free! (Group tours can be arranged as well, on weekdays.) NOTE: We offer guided tours to all Burbank elementary schools (3rd grade) throughout the school year. These are very popular! Our docent/volunteer opportunities provide an excellent way to meet new people and make friends -- maybe for life!!
