The Friends of the Eastern California Museum work to promote, preserve and protect the important collections and memories that make up Inyo County’s only regional museum. The Friends raise funds and contribute time and work to help maintain and improve the museum’s buildings and grounds. We support special exhibits and arrange for speakers, field trips, and programs that inform and entertain Inyo County residents and visitors who come from far and near. We have partnered with the Carson and Colorado group to display and promote the restored Slim Princess steam engine. We also provide funds to maintain the Museum’s collections and enhance its permanent exhibits. Every March we hold our Annual Meeting with a potluck dinner and guest speaker.

We invite you to join us as a Member of the Friends of the Eastern California Museum. Membership levels are listed below.
