In addition to participating in these hands-on activities, visitors can choose to take a free house or garden tour.
Garden tours are offered at 2:30 p.m. every Saturday & Sunday, and house tours are available Wednesday through Sunday from 1-5 p.m. The final Creation Station craft workshop before summer – Rainbow Surprise -- will be held on June 7. All workshops are free and run 1-4 p.m.
Rancho Los Cerritos is located at 4600 Virginia Road in Long Beach. Built in 1844, the adobe home and grounds echo with the rich history of Spanish, Mexican, and American California and with the families who helped transform Southern California from its ranching beginnings to the modern, urban society it is today. The two-story Monterey-style adobe is primarily furnished to reflect occupants and lifestyles from the 1860s-1880s. The site, a National, State and Long Beach Historic Landmark, also includes historic gardens and a research library and archives. The Rancho is operated by the Rancho Los Cerritos Foundation in private-public partnership with the City of Long Beach.
