Museum to Close for two years for renovations during waterfront construction

The ongoing construction along the L.A. Waterfront requires the Museum to be closed for approximately two years while a new “Town Square” is built directly in front of the Museum’s entrance. Beginning in September, the Museum will be closed to the public for two years. 

During the closure, staff and volunteers will continue to report to the Museum building in order to refurbish the exhibits and care for the tugboat. There will also be some long-awaited infrastructure improvements to the 78-year old museum building, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.
The staff and volunteers thank you for your support, and look forward to staying in touch during the project! At its completion, we will all enjoy a renovated Museum, new exhibits, and a real parking lot!
