  • My whole family loves this place, It has change so much since i was kid. I highly recommend it. The history of oil exhibit is awesome!!!
  • What a unique museum with well maintained grounds! Pretty cool that it is outdoors and surrounded by beautiful trees. I love this place and I will be returning to see Merle Haggard's boxcar. Bakersfield has a special place in my heart and I highly recommend this museum to anyone who enjoys history.
  • The Kern County Museum has one of the best outdoor historical architectural museums in California: Pioneer Village.
  • Love bringing my family here. Kids enjoy learning about the past. Beautiful restored historical homes, huge trees covering picnic areas to enjoy your lunches, and the Lori Brock exploration museum for the little ones. I encourage the locals to purchase a membership pass so you can visit all year long for that one time members fee. It also covers the entrance fee to Buena Vista museum downtown and a discount on tickets for the Calm Zoo.
  • Very good place to learn and take your kids to lori brick museum
