Your Contributions Help Support
Long Ago Long Beach, our innovative after-school program, reaches more than 800 underserved second and third graders every school year. We bring the Rancho to them, and then we bring them to the Rancho!
School Field Trips
Our award-winning school tour program, Adobe Days Revisited, invites fourth graders to travel back in time to the 1870s and experience life in early California through an immersive tour and activities.
Research Library, Collections & Archives
Rancho Los Cerritos is home to a California Research Library, and we hold 15,000 objects in our museum collection. Your support helps us study and preserve these important artifacts.
Adobe Preservation & Restoration
Restoring and preserving the historic adobe home and gardens—and sharing the Rancho’s stories with others—is at the core of our mission.
And now, Rancho Los Cerritos is growing! Our room expansion project will open several previously closed rooms in the Rancho, allowing us to share details of what life was like in the early 1930s.
Rancho Los Cerritos was a home for more than 100 years, and we keep that spirit alive with family and community programming. Throughout the year, more than 26,000 visitors take tours or attend special events.
Our changing exhibits present a vibrant and exciting look at Southern California’s past and present. In addition to the large exhibit in our Visitor Center, we offer an array of changing exhibits throughout the year.
As a member, you help the Rancho continue to evolve and share this rich history in new ways, opening doors to a dynamic learning experience for generations to come. Thank you for your support.
