The Los Altos History Museum is temporarily closing its main and upper galleries and lobby store to make way for the installation of a new, permanent exhibition featuring cutting-edge technology and interactive experiences.

The retiring of the decades-old exhibition located in the Upper Gallery and reconstruction of the new exhibition will begin Feb 7.

While the J. Gilbert Smith House and outdoor agricultural display will remain open, the temporary closure of the main building will allow the fabrication company to dismantle walls as museum staff remove and store artifacts.

Fans of the 1930s model-train diorama and other attractions in the “Crown of the Peninsula” display are encouraged to visit the museum before the closing, as the Upper Gallery will remain off-limits until…cont.
