Long Beach Architecture Week Returns!

Come celebrate the best of Long Beach’s past, present, and future as the much-heralded Long Beach Architecture Week returns on May 31 through June 11, 2023.  Kicking off the week is our annual Preservation Awards ceremony on May 31, where you will enjoy lunch, camaraderie, and community as we honor seven outstanding projects and people at the majestic Bembridge House.

The week continues with Premier tours of the THUMBS islands, the Villa Riviera (including a VIP tour!), Art Deco bus tours, a select Great Homes Tour, and much more!  To view all events and to purchase tickets for each event, click the link below.



Assisting the Queen Mary Heritage Foundation

Long Beach Heritage is pleased to support the efforts to restore and preserve one of the icons of the City of Long Beach, the Queen Mary. A new non-profit, the Queen Mary Heritage Foundation, will soon be online to accept donations directly. In the meantime, Long Beach Heritage is assisting in offering the ability for you to donate or to become a member of the Queen Mary’s new annual membership program. We hope you will consider helping with this worthy preservation project. To learn more about this project, please email Joseph.Rodriguez-Jozwiak@longbeach.gov.
