Second Saturday at Home

At the Temecula Valley Museum, we celebrate a different region or culture on the 2nd Saturday of each month. Since we’re all spending Saturdays (and every other day) at home, we’ve uploaded some of the fun things we’d planned to share!! Join us – virtually – and learn about the history and culture of you, or your neighbors!
