The International Surfing Museum is a must for surf buffs thanks to such sacred relics as a surfboard used by Duke Kahanamoku, a cornerstone from the 1914 Huntington Beach Pier, a guitar owned by surf instrumental king Dick Dale, and the Rolex camera used by Bruce Brown to film The Endless Summer. After a recent renovation, the International Surfing Museum is again open to the public with improved exhibits, technology and a new Welcome Center.
The International Surfing Museum also hosts the Surfin' Sundays Summer Concert Series in downtown and at Pier Plaza. Featuring surf bands from around the world, the summer concert series has become a must-attend event for Huntington Beach locals and visitors. The museum also acts as the home-base for the monthly Huntington Beach Art Walk, held the third Thursday of each month throughout downtown Huntington Beach.
Located at 411 Olive Avenue in downtown Huntington Beach, the International Surfing Museum is open daily. The museum requests a $2 per person donation for admission; entrance to the Welcome Center is free. Free parking is also available for Surfing Museum guests, with 20-minute parking available for Welcome Center patrons. For more information about the International Surfing Museum, visit their website.
