History

The Cupertino Historical Society and Museum (CHS&M) is dedicated to ensuring that the heritage of Cupertino stays alive for all to understand and share, and for all to assimilate as their heritage. CHS&M was established in 1966 and the Museum was opened in 1990.

Our purpose is to "Create a Passion for the Past." We do this by collecting the artifacts and ephemera that represent the past and present of Cupertino. The CHS&M houses approximately 3,000 artifacts spanning over 100 years of Cupertino’s history – including settlement, agriculture, education, home life, and business. Select artifacts are displayed in our museum according to theme in rotating vignette exhibits.


May 5th Silicon Valley Gives - Donate during this 24-hour online giving day.

CHS is excited to announce that we are participating in Silicon Valley Gives an event aimed at inspiring and uniting our local community to support philanthropic causes, hosted by the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.

On Tuesday, May 5, 2015, Silicon Valley Gives will raise money for local nonprofits through a single online giving platform, providing a simple way to connect donors to the charitable causes they care about most and encourage them to take action.

Our hope is that you will respond with a commitment that will help keep the Cupertino Historical Society viable and the Museum open and continuing to provide community service.
