Covina has two museums, both operated by the Covina Valley Historical Society.

Built in 1911, the firehouse-jail was the first civic building in the City of Covina. It now houses the Covina Firehouse/Jail Museum, located adjacent to City Hall at 125 East College Street. It is open every Sunday, except holidays, 1-3 p.m. and by appointment. It is staffed by volunteers with the Covina Valley Historical Society, who guide tours and answer questions.

The Historic Heritage House, located on the west side of Covina Park on Valencia Place between Badillo Street and San Bernardino Road, is open the fourth Sunday of each month, except holidays, 1-3 p.m.

For further information on either of the museums, please contact the Covina Valley Historical Society at (626) 966-9871.

Also, if you're interested in Covina history, don't miss seeing  The Vintage Years, Covina Before 1950, a photographic exhibit located at Covina City Hall. You can journey into Covina's past by viewing 130 rare photographs that depict the history of Covina from 1846 to 1950.

The exhibit is open to the public for self-guided tours during City Hall regular business hours, Monday-Thursday, 7 a.m.-6 p.m.

Special tours led by docents, may be scheduled for school and community groups, by calling the Parks and Recreation Department at (626) 384-5340
