    The Museum collects, conserves and exhibits these arts of daily life – by unknown craftsmen of ancient times, from traditional cultures of past and present and by historical and contemporary designers.

    You'll get a close look at pottery, wood carvings, textiles, retablos, masks bronzes, costumes, jewelry, and much more from all four corners of the globe.

    What's more, the collection sits in the stunning House of Charm, a gorgeous Mission Revival Style buidling that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 

    Did you know?

    The word mingei, meaning 'art of the people,' was coined by the Japanese scholar Dr. Sōetsu Yanagi by combining the Japanese words for all people (min 民) and art (gei 芸).
