THANK YOU 🙏 so much to Heather McRae of the Orange County Register for covering the opening reception for our latest exhibit.

https://www.ocregister.com/2021/07/26/fullerton-museum-center-reopens-with-new-visiting-exhibit/

-“Have Blues, Will Travel showcases the experiences of Black blues musicians who traveled the country from the 1930s to 1960s, and the dangers they faces, especially while touring in the south. The Negro Motorist Green Book, recently the topic of the Academy Award-winning film “Green Book,” was one resource the musicians relied on for safe places to stop, and is featured in the exhibit along with other artifacts and narratives.”

We had such a fantastic turnout for our re-opening party 🎉 and it was great to see our community come together to enjoy the museum again! 🙌

The exhibit gallery and gift shop are open:

Thursdays 4-8pm
Fridays 12-4pm
Saturdays 12-4pm

If you have any photos or videos of our event, please tag us @fullertonmuseum so that we can share.

A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who came out to our Beer + Wine Garden yesterday! 🌟 Our Thursday night Beer + Wine Garden is the FMC’s primary fundraising activity, and we greatly appreciated the outpouring of support from our wonderful community last night.

Don’t forget, our grand opening celebration is TOMORROW, Saturday July 24th from 6-9PM. Our friends at Bourbon Street and Bootlegger's Brewery have graciously sponsored our appetizers and beverages, and we will have a fantastic performance by Sista Jean!

Here are a few photos of yesterday’s gathering. Be sure to tag your friends!

MARK YOUR CALENDAR 🗓️ Our grand reopening is Saturday, July 24th! Join us from 6-9PM for the opening reception of our “Have Blues, Will Travel” exhibit!

“Have Blues, Will Travel” is inspired by the 2018 film "Green Book," directed by Peter Farrelly. The Green Book was a published tool that helped traveling Blues musicians find safe places to stay, eat, and perform.

Although this film is informative, it leaves out several details about discrimination against Black people during the Great Migration and emphasized a white savior narrative. With the usage of artifacts, photographs, and songs, this exhibit encapsulates the true struggle that Black Blues musicians faced while traveling and shows that the Green Book was much more than a travel guide but rather a lifesaving tool.

🌟 QUICK EVENT DETAILS 🌟
Date: July 24th, 2021
Time: 6:00 - 9:00PM

🌟 PRICING TIERS 🌟
2020 Members: FREE
Adults: $20
Children 5-18: $10

Thank you FMC for this wonderful take home art project! You ROCK!! ;P Mommy and Me Mandala Stones!
We used pieces of the art kit today and made mermaids. Thank you for the free art kit and we look forward to our next art project.
Fullerton's Taco Fest was a total BUST!!!... Most vendors were out of meat before 7 PM!!! What a waste of effort to attend! This was the 9th annual??? How many years does it take to get your act together???
I am very excited about tomorrow. I am looking at meeting a very special dog who would like to be friends with me. It doesn't matter what breed you are, (I like Goldens, German shepherds, or Dobermans.) I like to cuddle and be jumped on. But it must be in a chair! Any of you dogs need a friend, I will be right down after 4 o'clock! So talk to me and give me your cute woof woof woofs! I love y'all!
When are the Dog Days? I love them!
There is som much history you can hear and feel the soul of Leo Fender
Our Fullerton tee is back!
When are Dog Days please? I get a lot of great compliments from the dogs when I go! If it's August 9, I can't go; I go to Camp Bloomfield (Malibu, CA) same day.
Please come and enjoy the show!!! I don't see this advertised on the site, but this show will be this Friday evening!
