Greetings and happy holidays from Monterey County Agriculture & Rural Life Museum! We cordially invite boys & girls of all ages to celebrate the holidays "country style" at the museum, located in San Lorenzo County Park. MCARLM will have an array of special activities including the following:

  • Museum Tours

  • Holiday Movies in our on site theatre

Our gift shop will be open to accommodate your LOCAL holiday shopping needs, as we have many unique items from artwork to toys and everything in between.

Your donation will help us continue to inspire and engage current and future generations of agriculture and rural life history enthusiasts. Without the Agricultural and Rural Life Museum, our community would be bereft of the inspiration and sustenance provided by the historical context of our exhibitions. No matter the size of your budget, your gift will make a difference! Gifts of all sizes tremendously appreciated.

Thank you for your contribution!
