El Camino Real: Changing California

November 9, 2023 - February 25, 2024
El Camino Real: Changing California

Once a humble dirt footpath, the historical transformation of the renowned El Camino Real that connects the 21 California Missions is a fascinating journey. Discover the story of this iconic road at Los Altos History Museum's newest exhibition, “El Camino Real: Changing California," on display November 9, 2023 to February 25, 2024.

The exhibition offers an exploration of the sometimes controversial history surrounding El Camino Real, shedding light on its profound impact on indigenous communities as the Spanish Missions were constructed. Visitors can also learn about the women who played a pivotal role in immortalizing El Camino Real, adorning its path with symbolic bronze bells.

Artworks portraying the Missions will be on display, and photographs documenting the businesses and institutions that flourished along the route. Among the noteworthy artifacts, a refurbished bell marker, accompanied by its design schematics. The exhibition also explores how cruising the El Camino became a dominant part of the car culture of the 1950s and 1960s. 

The Museum is open Thursday - Sunday, noon - 4pm, with admission completely free.
