Olaf Wieghorst Museum & Western Heritage Center


About Us

The Wieghorst Museum preserves the work of Olaf Wieghorst, a great Danish-American twentieth century painter, and celebrates the heritage of the American West through his art.

The Wieghorst Museum is an anchor institution in East County San Diego’s El Cajon Art and Entertainment District. The museum includes the artist’s gallery, exhibition space, the artist’s historic home and studio (a local historic landmark building) and a manicured southwest cactus/succulent garden. The museum presents tours, workshops, classes, exhibitions and events.

The museum provides a place for artists of the Western genre, both performing and visual, to showcase their art. It is available as an event venue for business meetings, receptions, weddings, and institutional fundraising.
