According to the National Archives, 70° Fahrenheit is the preferred temperature that is optimal for the preservation of artifacts in exhibition spaces. It is the degree in which archival materials should be protected for long-term conservation. As curators, we assist you with crafting your narrative. We offer archival, preservation, exhibition, design and editing services. In this digital age, we fuse humanities with technology.

We have been collaborating with the Moulton family since 2017. They once owned Rancho Niguel in Orange County with nearly 22,000 acres. Moulton Ranch is now expanded into other parts of California where annual roundups with a branding take place and we partner with the California Rangeland Trust.

We opened Moulton Museum in September 2022. We are developing an online and physical experience. The museum will include a digitally accessible archive. We are collaborating with a variety of civic, cultural, and historic groups to make this vision possible. 

Thank you for visiting Moulton Museum. We debuted in Laguna Hills on September 2nd & 3rd, 2022. We had nearly 1,000 visitors over the course of two days.
