  • It's a fairly small museum but well maintained. My friends and I were able to see and do pretty much everything there in about 4 hours. All exhibits are well presented and staff is always friendly. I definitely recommend it for young families and the elderly but I have been with several of my friends all in our mid 20's and still had an enjoyable afternoon. Due to great tree coverage even in our brutal summer time the heat is bearable.
  • I liked walking around and learning about all the different peoples that came to found Bakersfield. But, some of the plaques were too faded to read, and it would have been better if they had a guided tour. A really cool blend of older and modern buildings and unfortunately I did not get to see their new oil show. I would be willing to go shop was pretty cool, but card machines were not working so we could not buy anything. Was kinda limited though.
  • It was a lovely experience.. My youngest daughter even got married there.. It was a beautiful wedding .. I've always enjoyed the museum here .. Now I'm heading back there again today 👌
  • Very good local museum with information office on site. Learn a lot about local history.
  • A nice museum worth visiting to learn about a piece of American History.
