The Riverside Metropolitan Museum is a much-loved and popular museum in our community. The museum provides Riverside residents and visitors with the opportunity to experience the culture and history of our region, offering educational programs, cultural events, permanent and special exhibits, and a collection of hundreds of thousands of artifacts in the areas of Natural History, Anthropology, and History.
As a non-profit organization, the museum is free to the public and depends on the support of gifts, volunteering, and fundraisers to continue its mission.
This February, you can support the Riverside Metropolitan Museum at the organization’s latest fundraiser: Tour and Taste. The Tour and Taste Fundraiser will feature hors d’oeuvres and wine from Riverside’s finest restaurants, performances by jazz musician Vaughn Fahie, and the debut of the museum’s John Muir exhibit. Guests of the fundraiser will enjoy sampling the delicious appetizers while learning more about naturalist John Muir.
The fundraiser will take place on February 28th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Admission costs $40 per person. Two wine tickets are included in the price. For more information about this event or the Riverside Metropolitan Museum, visit the city of Riverside website.
