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.
