Wells Fargo History Museum

Discover how Los Angeles evolved from a humble pueblo to an ever-growing metropolis. See how Angelenos did their banking and stayed connected, before the digital age.

See what it was like to shop in the 1880s, and browse historical maps that document the growth of LA from a small town of 1,600 to a bustling city of over 4 million. The museum also features interactive exhibits, an original Concord Coach, a historically re-created agent’s office, a working telegraph, and samples of gold, including a 27-ounce gold nugget.

Admission is free.
