Museum of American Heritage(MAOH) was founded in 1990 by Frank Livermore, pictured at left. Frank began collecting in 1960. As his collection grew, he encountered other collectors with similar interests, and eventually this group became the nucleus of the Museum's founding group. Frank was active in Museum affairs until his death in 2000. The Museum occupied two previous sites in Palo Alto before settling in its current location. MOAH's purpose We combine elements of history, technology and design to illustrate the evolution of technology, how and why it has influenced society from inception to the current time, and a glimpse of future expectations. Exhibits, classes, lectures and family-friendly events appeal to students of all ages, with many MOAH classes providing middle school students hands-on learning opportunities not readily available elsewhere. MOAH's Objectives: honoring founder Frank Livermore's contributions and legacy to the community. Collect, preserve and display historic objects and inventions that illustrate the effects and influence of innovation. Provide educational activities that integrate history, technology and design Show the evolution, influence and relevance of historic innovations to the technologies and society of the past and present. Establish self-confidence with science and applied mathematics through the use of guided, hands-on experimentation to teach technical concepts. Honor the contributions of local individuals, organizations and industries to technological history. Present private collections not otherwise available to the public. Provide a stimulating social and professional venue for volunteers to serve the community
