The Bead Museum Collection Is On Its Way


The Collection has been packed by our incredible volunteers and staff and is on its way to the Mingei International Museum in San Diego

The Peter Francis Jr. Archives have been picked up and are making their way across the country back to the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

Please show your support of our museum and visit these collections in California and New York.


Thank you to all our sponsors, members, volunteers, and staff for the last 25 years

A special thank you to all the volunteers who came in and helped pack up the museum. Your dedication was incredible and we did it the right way and in the right amount of time.


The website will no longer be maintained but you can follow the Bead Museum and what is happening with the collection and our curator, Karen Karn, who will both be in San Diego.
