The Museum was established in Lompoc’s former Carnegie Library to display s collection of Chumash and other Native American artifacts. The adjacent Artesia School Museum was the first country school in the Lompoc Valley. The school was built in 1876 and is now fully restored and furnished for public viewing on the fourth Saturday of every month from 2-4 p.m. (from website)
