Collection of Thousands of

Guided Search

Whether you are looking for a specific photograph, information on a particular historic Marin figure or conducting a multi-faceted research project, working with a Marin History Museum expert may be the best way to conduct your search.

While we digitize items into the Museum database everyday, the great preponderance – and strength – of the collection is the massive amount of paper-based information and physical artifacts acquired over the 80 years of Museum operation.  Our experts have decades of experience exploring these resources.

Major elements of the Collection are interconnected, and our experts can help you navigate these paths.  It is very likely that that information attendant to your search, whether it is about an event, individual, organization, city or location, will be found in each of our Artifact, Photography and Library & Archive Collections.

Working with a Marin History Museum expert is easy.  Call us at 415-381-1182 or email and let us know what you are looking for.  We will set up an appointment to visit the Museum’s Craemer Family Collection and Research Facility and guide you to available resources.  Our street address and a map to our Collection Facility are located on our Contact Us page. 

Please note that depending on your level of support, members of the Marin History Museum receive free research hours in the Craemer Family Collection and Research Facility.

While our Collection is indeed extensive, the County of Marin and local history societies might also prove helpful in your search.  Follow this link to a directory of organizations on our Partners page.
