Founded in 1935, the not-for-profit Marin History Museum celebrates the traditions of innovation and creativity of the people of Marin County. The collection includes historic artifacts and documents that relate to the history of Marin County and consists of some 20,000 artifacts and more than 200,000 historical photographs.
After a complete board reorganization in April 2016, the Marin History Museum is in the process of transition with the goal of ensuring the preservation of the museum's collection and assets for long-term stability and sustainable future. With support from the County of Marin combined with a handful of private donations, the first priority of the new board, in collaboration with the County Librarian and the Department of Cultural Services, is to assess and stabilize the collection through a careful and thoughtful process with museum professionals.

Thank you for your interest in the Marin History Museum. We look forward to regaining our place as a part of Marin County's vibrant future.
