Our Future Plans
The Lompoc Museum has set the main funding priorities for the next 5 years: A) Increase and improve interpretation of exhibits to enhance the visitor experience. B) Create an educational garden to demonstrate and share the rich history of plant use in the Lompoc area. This "living exhibit" will include three distinct areas with unique foci: the pre-contact use of indigenous plants by the Chumash; the Victorian era of the Carnegie Building; and the advocacy of an environmentally sustainable xeriscape garden like the completed Stone Pine Hall garden shown at right.

The Lompoc Museum is funded through grants, memberships, and donations. An annual grant from the City of Lompoc supports the care and display of the city-owned Clarence Ruth Collection. Other daily operations are funded through memberships and small donations. Special projects are dependent on foundation grants and large donations.
