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.

Located in the Quinlan Community Center, the museum is open to the public 
Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. depending on the availability of  museum volunteers. Please call 408.973.1495 to make sure the museum is open.

 Admission is FREE but donations are always welcome.
