  3. Muckenthaler Cultural Center


This is an Italian Renaissance-style home that was built in 1915 and belonged to Walter Muckenthaler. The grandiose design and decor are breathtaking and bring to mind an earlier era. The house was donated to the city of Fullerton in 1965 to be used as a cultural center. There are more than eight acres of beautiful botanical gardens where many kinds of art are displayed. In 1993 an outdoor amphitheater was built to house theatrical productions. Each year the center plays host to dozens of events ranging from photography exhibits and poetry readings to fundraisers and festivals.
