Galleries & museums
The Edward-Dean Museum opened in 1958, and was founded by Edward Eberle and Dean Stout. The Museum features late 16th to
early 19th century European & Asian Decorative Arts. Dean Stout designed the interior spaces of the museum to create a home-like
atmosphere with the intent to share with the visitor a first-hand experience of the ambiance of the time period. The museum
and its 16-acre campus originally came under the county in 1964.
On July 1, 1999, the Edward-Dean Museum was shifted to the Economic Development Agency (EDA), a department of the County of
Riverside, to manage. Rob Field, Assistant County Executive Officer/EDA, along with the Deputy Director, Marketing Director,
and staff is handling the administrative operations. Historically the Friends of the Edward-Dean Museum, a not-for-profit
organization with a board of directors, has been an ongoing champion of exhibits, preservation of the museum's permanent collection,
and museum-specific projects.
The Edward-Dean Museum is located at 9401 Oak Glen Road, Cherry Valley, CA.. The Museum's permanent collections are primarily
16th through 19th century European and Asian decorative arts, comprising furniture, ceramics, glass, textiles, sculptures,
and many small collections such as miniature paintings, fans and pocket watches
