Events in 2021

As of Sunday, March 15, 2020, in the interest of the health of our staff and guests, the Museum will be closed until further notice.

We miss you! In an abundance of caution, we buttoned-up the Museum back in March 2020 when instructed to do so. We have not yet set our reopening date, but are working with City Staff to make sure all appropriate COVID-19 safeguards are in place before we welcome you back.

If you have questions or require research assistance, please leave a message at the Museum (310.328.5392) and we will try and assist you. Or you can either send an email to Debbie Hays, (4th VP - Communication & Newsletter) or via this website on the Contact Us page.

Though it pains us, to help slow the spread of COVID-19, we are cancelling Tea for Two and Rock Around the Block for 2021.

As of right now we haven't cancelled any more of the 2021 signature events. Everything is based on COVID numbers, of course. And . . . since those are changing weekly, nothing has been set in stone, yet.

We do have a few ideas up our sleeves, so stay tuned!

THS Museum lights This never-happened-before-in-our-lifetime-until-now pandemic is history in the making. To honor the hospitality industry (purple), who has been hit particularly hard, and those on the frontline (blue), the Torrance Historical Society is lighting up the Museum in purple and blue, every night until the end of April in a show of solidarity and hope.

Thanks to DJ Ozzie who adjusted the purple and blue lights at the Torrance Historical Society & Museum, so it looks even better than initially. The Museum will continue to light-up history in purple (hospitality industry) and blue (frontliners) from 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM every night until May 15th. Stop by and see it in person!
