A contemporary art museum hosting three innovative exhibitions each year. Muzeo is part of a 25,000 square foot complex encompassing Anaheim’s original Carnegie Library and the state-of-the-art Main Gallery.
The Historic 1908 Carnegie Library is on the United States National Register of Historic Places, and was built using a 10K grant funded by Andrew Carnegie. It served as the city library until 1963, then became home to the Anaheim Museum in 1987 before becoming part of Muzeo in 2008. It serves as an exhibition and event satellite location for Muzeo.
The permanent exhibition is housed in the historic 1908 Carnegie Library building, and provides a storehouse of artifacts that highlight the history of Anaheim and the surrounding area. Artifacts in the exhibition range from fossil findings and ancient Indian wares to 19th-Century winery and citrus-farming tools, along with display cases filled with treasures from Anaheim and Orange County’s past. The exhibition has a unique collection of items that once belonged to the city’s founders and leaders, as well as memorabilia from Disneyland, Anaheim Stadium and other historic locations.
