Our Museum celebrates History

The Hermosa Beach Museum was founded in 1987 to acquire, preserve, and interpret historical memorabilia and other materials pertaining to the history of the City of Hermosa Beach. Our mission is to engage, delight and educate the community through the exploration of history.


How the Fund Works

This fund was founded with a $50,000 donation by Don and Barbara Guild, life long Hermosa Beach residents and business owners known for their legacy of The Guild Drugstore.

The Guild Endowment Fund is overseen by the Museum Executive Board. The Endowment will have an initial funding target of $1,000,000. Once the Endowment reaches that target, any investment earnings that accrue during the calendar year, where the Endowment balance remains over $1,000.000, can be utilized to help fund the Museum operating expenses.
