Event Details

The public is invited to the grand opening of Los Altos History Museum’s new Permanent Exhibition, “Making Connections: Stories from the Land,” on Saturday, February 11 from 11am to 4pm.


Over two years in the making, the exhibition delivers an immersive experience through expansive video walls, interactive touch screens and listening stations, and intriguing artifacts to tell the story of the people and events that shaped the area.


The history is laid out across four sections—the hills, creeks, valley, and town—and complemented by a community corner. In each section, visitors can hear people stories, see artifacts, and read historic timelines anchored to that landscape.


To the delight of children and adults alike, the popular train diorama returns with new augmented reality (AR) features that further delve into the history of the local area.


The free opening celebration will be held in the Museum’s courtyard (weather permitting) or, in the event of rain, inside the Los Altos Community Center. The schedule of activities includes:


  • 11am: Courtyard opens
  • 11:15am: Welcome from Muwekma Ohlone Tribe
  • 11:40am: Comments from elected officials and museum representatives
  • 12pm: Ribbon-cutting ceremony
  • 12–4pm: Timed exhibition tours
  • 12:15–3:30pm: Intercultural performances curated by Mosaic America celebrating our diverse neighborhoods through cultural expressions
