Beauty and the Beast

California Wildflowers and Climate Change Exhibit Details
Statement of Solidarity with Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander Communities Anti-Asian legislation, prejudice, and racial violence are facts in our local history. From the burning of San Jose’s Chinatown on May 4, 1887 to the unjust incarceration of Japanese Americans from Los Altos during World War II, there are continuous, violent acts intended to marginalize members of our AAPI community.

Los Altos History Museum’s mission to challenge established narratives means we actively seek to illuminate the facts of our past that many would rather forget. We vow to continue highlighting the stories and historic legacy of Asian Americans in the local region and advocate for racial equality through our programming, exhibits, collections and research. As local historians, we celebrate the impactful contributions of AAPI members in our community and embrace the educational power of intercultural connections.
