About The Museum

First opened in 1952, the Forest Lawn Museum is located adjacent to the Hall of Crucifixion-Resurrection at Forest Lawn – Glendale.  Forest Lawn’s founder, Dr. Hubert Eaton, wrote in his Builder’s Creed that our park should be “a place where artists study and sketch; where school teachers bring happy children to see the things they read of in books.” In that spirit, the Forest Lawn Museum displays a permanent collection, as well as world-class rotating exhibits. With engaging special exhibits and free educational and artistic activities, there is always something new to experience.
