Discover Our Rich History & Culture
The Richmond Museum of History & Culture is the most significant local history museum in West Contra Costa County. The museum is housed in a Carnegie Library built in 1910 that boasts a permanent exhibit gallery and a space for temporary exhibits and special events. The Museum draws from their extensive permanent collection of artifacts, photographs, and documents to host educational programs and exhibitions for the benefit of the public. The Richmond Museum of History has had a presence in Richmond, California for over sixty years and we are proud to be a cornerstone of the community.
The museum is in trouble financially due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We have no choice but to increase the cost of admissions.
