Support Heritage Museum
Heritage Museum is fortunate to have generous supporters who believe in the importance of our mission. Sponsors help to support educational programs that enrich the cultural, social, and historical experiences of thousands of visitors from Orange County and the surrounding areas. Our sponsors drive us forward and encourage us to develop new and exciting opportunities for the community. We would be grateful to have your support for our museum family, in the hopes that we may continue to drive community engagement virtually.
Heritage Museum of Orange County answers the question asked by many children—“What was here before the freeways, neighborhoods, and shopping malls?” These 11 acres of land near the intersection of Fairview and West Harvard Street in Santa Ana reflect the region’s legacy of triumphs, hardships, and transformations. Museum visitors of all ages have the opportunity to step back in time to experience the heritage, history, and culture of the county through hands-on, minds-on educational programs.
Heritage Museum of Orange County is a cultural and natural history center dedicated to preserving, promoting, and restoring the heritage of Orange County and the surrounding region through quality hands-on educational programs for students and visitors of all ages.
During a whirlwind of suburban and business development, the need became apparent to preserve the past and maintain connections to early founders. Providing an ideal link to Orange County’s entrepreneurial history, the 1898 home of the Kellogg family was moved from its original location in Santa Ana on Orange and Walnut to Fairview and West Harvard Street in 1980. In 1982, the Maag Family residence, which was originally located on the present-day site of Fairhaven Memorial Park in Santa Ana, joined the Kellogg house. Officially founded in 1981, the museum opened for visitors in 1985.
Today, Heritage Museum of Orange County offers elaborate “living history” exhibits and environmental stewardship opportunities for visitors of all ages. Developed to provide a host of exploratory and interpretive educational experiences, Heritage Museum attracts more than 40,000 guests a year.
Heritage Museum of Orange County is moving forward to continue its commitment to excellence as a premier living history and education center. Its 19th century beauty and natural setting sets the theme to experience and learn about the county’s unique past. Planning is underway for program development, event and exhibition production, and the restoration of the Maag House and Garden.
