Santa Monica History Museum to Offer Free Admission March 9, 2017

The Santa Monica History Museum will offer free admission on Thursday, March 9, 2017 from

noon to 8:00 PM at the Santa Monica History Museum at 1350 7th Street, Santa Monica, CA 90401. All are invited to visit

on this day to take advantage of free admission to the museum’s six galleries.

In addition to the permanent exhibition detailing the founding and growth of the City of Santa Monica, the Santa Monica

History Museum is currently offering a special exhibit on the history of Girl Scouts. The exhibit, The Journey of Girl Scouts:

Empowering Young Women, details the history of the Girl Scouts of the USA using documents, photographs, memorabilia,

and artifacts like uniforms dating back to the 1940s. Long a fixture of the Santa Monica community, the exhibit will also

share the history of local girl scouting. Photographs from the Santa Monica History Museum’s collections will be on

display as well as objects on loan from local former Girl Scouts and the Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles Heritage

Committee. This exhibit is a collaboration between the Santa Monica History Museum and local Girl Scout Cadettes, Ciara

Dalling and Olivia Kienzle. Dalling and Kienzle organized the exhibit as their Girl Scout Silver Award project. The Silver

Award is the highest honor a Girl Scout Cadette can earn – giving the girl, or team of girls, a chance to achieve a large

project that benefits their community.

Free admission includes both the museum’s permanent and temporary exhibits. With free admission, all are welcome to

visit, bring family and friends, and enjoy a day of appreciating our local history and culture.

For more information please contact Kathryn Evans at 310.395.2290 or kevans@santamonicahistory.org.
