The Cupertino Historical Society and Museum (CHS&M) is dedicated to ensuring that the tradition, history, and past of Cupertino stays alive for all to understand and share the richness of our diverse culture. CHS&M was established in 1966 and the Museum was opened in 1990.

Our purpose is to "Create a Passion for history".  We do this by collecting the artifacts and ephemera that represent the past and present of Cupertino. There are 3,000 artifacts spanning over 100 years of Cupertino’s history – including settlement, agriculture, education, home life, and business.


Upcoming Events:

CHS&M Annual Meeting & Speaker Program

A description of the Cupertino Historical Society, including its founding and development, current programs/exhibits, and plans for the future. The show also includes a brief description of several people who played significant roles in Cupertino history. This program was aired on KMVT15 Community Media.
