Discover the Lompoc Museum
Lompoc Museum has two floors of exhibits on the history of the Lompoc Valley. The Museum was established in Lompoc’s former Carnegie Library in 1969 to display the Clarence Ruth Collection of Chumash and other Native American artifacts. Additional collections and displays on the Pioneer and Natural History of the area have been added.

In Addition to Our Permanent Exhibits
An exhibit of World War I memorabilia commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the end of the “War to End All Wars”. On exhibit through November 11, 2019.
World War Monument
Newly repaired and enhanced, the monument is located on the grounds of the Lompoc Museum and inscribed with the words “In Honor of Our World War Heroes.” Originally dedicated in 1925 to honor Lompoc’s fallen soldiers, the repaired granite memorial was re-dedicated November 11, 2018 to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War. We are currently raising funds to complete the final phase of repairs and install a life-sized bronze eagle. All donations are tax deductible.
School and Group tours of the Lompoc Museum and Artesia School Museum are available.
