  • The California Museum for history, women & the arts is located in the California Secretary of State Archives building. The recently exhibit was "Art & Advocacy: To Be Developmentally Disabled" in the Maria Shriver gallery. They have the California Hall of Fame and the "Health Happens Here" display. There are some Mickey Mouse statues. This museum is accessible from the Archives Plaza Regional Transit light rail station.
  • I came to this Museum on a weekday and it was nearly empty. Besides my party there was only 2 other people visiting the museum. Some of the exhibits were interesting some of them were not. Most of the exhibits are not permanent so depending on what is being displayed it may or may not be worth going to the museum.
  • Spacious and not overwhelming or pretentious. Staff members are friendly. Nice that there are benches throughout for short breaks.
  • This is an awesome little museum. I was here for an after-hours private event and was able to walk around. It's very interactive for kids.
  • Loved the museum! And this was the day I got engaged because my fiancé knows how much I love art! Great customer service, just overall very clean and easy layout
