Pasadena Museum of History to launch Community Wednesdays

On July 1, Pasadena Museum of History will inaugurate “Community Wednesdays,” offering free admission each Wednesday through January 6, 2010 to the Family Stories exhibition for persons who live, work, or go to school in our community. Visitors should mention this offer and verify their “local” status by showing some form of I.D. in the Museum Store.

The groundbreaking exhibition Family Stories: Sharing a Community’s Legacy features the personal, multi-generational chronicles of six longtime Pasadena families. The stories of the Duncan, Gertmenian, Lowe, Stevenson, Kawai, and Mejia families shed light on the experiences of our African-American, Armenian-American, Chinese-American, Euro-American, Japanese-American, and Latino communities, respectively. For additional exhibit information, please visit

It is the Museum’s hope that this exhibition will inspire everyone to reflect on how their own family’s lives and experiences are contributing to the ongoing creation of history and community. Family Stories is on view Wednesdays through Sundays from 12:00-5:00 pm in the History Center Galleries, located on the PMH grounds at 470 W. Walnut St. (corner Orange Grove Blvd. and Walnut St.). Free parking is available in the Museum lot.

To be eligible for this free offer, visitors must live, work, or go to school in one of the following cities:

Eagle Rock
