Rancho Los Cerritos is the only Long Beach, State, and National historic landmark in Long Beach, California. It is operated by the Rancho Los Cerritos Foundation in a public/private partnership with the City of Long Beach. The Rancho Los Cerritos Foundation is the historic voice for the diverse people who shaped Southern California. Public hours are Wednesday through Sunday from 1 to 5 pm and include free parking, admission, and tours. The site echoes with the rich history of indigenous, Spanish, Mexican, and American California. While visiting, you can see the latest exhibits at the Visitor Center, tour the 175-year-old adobe home, and stroll the gardens. When you tour the house, you can immerse yourself in the stories of the families who helped transform Southern California from its ranching beginnings to a modern, urban society. The site also includes a research library and archives. Along with our public hours, we host events for all ages including storytime, bird walks, and garden tours. You can also rent the site for private events such as weddings, corporate retreats, and luncheons.
