The Whittier Historical Society owns and operates the Whittier Museum and provides tours of the Historic Bailey House. Our mission is to collect, preserve, and display materials of historical significance to the greater Whittier area. We also produce programs and special exhibits of interest to the Whittier community. The Whittier Museum and Bailey House are open to the public with free admission. We hope you will visit soon!

August Hours

The Whittier Museum is back to the normal operating hours:  Tues. through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm and Saturday from 1 to 4 pm.

The Bailey House will be open every Sunday in August from 1 to 4 pm. Enjoy a cool tour of the house thanks to newly installed air conditioning!

Dining for Dollars

Dining for Dollars returns in September with Blaze Pizza from 4:30 to 8:30 pm on Tuesday Sept. 10. Blaze will donate 20% of your bill to the Whittier Historical Society. (Dine-in or take-out, but no internet orders.) Blaze is located at 13582 Whittier Blvd., at the north east corner of the Quad. Bring a copy of the flier, OR show a copy of the flier on your phone. Thanks for your support!

Other Than Quakers Part II

"William Volkmor - Catholic Pioneer of Whittier" will be exhibited through the end of 2019 on the second floor of the Museum. More information.

Jose Ramos Exhibit

Our newest permanent exhibit features Whittierite Jose Ramos and the bicycle he rode across the US in 2004 to bring greater attention to Vietnam veterans. He is the founder of "Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day" which has been celebrated in Whittier since 2002 and state-wide since 2009.
