THE BENICIA HISTORICAL MUSEUM AT THE CAMEL BARNS has a mission:

 “To engage the community and the greater public in the evolving history of Benicia and its contributions to the development of our state and country.  Dedicated to our children and future generations, our work fosters understanding, connectivity, identity, and pride.  The Museum complex is at the heart of Benicia’s historic preservation and heritage promotion programs through its exhibits, educational outreach, online archives, and events and activities.”

 

Based on a vision:

“The History of California is written in the story of Benicia.”

 

We educate our youth and seniors through tours, provide exhibits for Community and Heritage Tourism visitors, as well as serving as a community cultural center and providing online archives free to the public.

 

Please help us to continue our valuable work through your year-end contribution to our annual campaign – your gift is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. 

 

Thank you for your support!
