Hearst Castle is one of the world‘s most famous public museums. Its architect Julia Morgan built the magnificent building near San Simeon on the Pacific Coast in Central California for William Randolph Hearst between 1919–1947. Its architectural form is mostly based on the examples of the Mediterranean architecture of Spain and southern Italy. The private residence where Hearst had hosted the famous Hollywood Society became a public cultural heritage in 1957. Since then, visitors have been allowed to admire Casa Grande and other suites, furnished with an unusually rich collection of European works of art, mostly of Medieval and Renaissance origins. The interiors are preserved in the original state in order for the visitors to enjoy the atmosphere of the 1930s. The installation of the artworks is one of the prime examples of the living history approach in a museum.
