  • Nice historical museum just north of town which can be covered in a couple of hours with an adult entry fee of $10 which is about right. Highlight was the Black Gold exhibit which was very educational...  more »

  • What a lovely find. The museum and pioneer village have been created with such thoughtfulness. The attention to detail was truly appreciated. It's a great way to learn about the history of the community. I could have stayed longer but it closes at 4 on Sunday Highly recommend. It won't disappoint.
  • Such a cool place to visit. Had a blast walking around exploring the houses and buildings. It's a lot of walking, bring comfortable shoes. We went on a Friday afternoon and only saw 1 other visitor. I wish they would let you into some of the houses.
  • I had some much fun. My friends and I were running around looking at the different buildings. It's a great place to bring kids.
  • Fantastic history of Kern County and specifically the oil industry and Bakersfield Sound. Go early and beat heat. Great for kids.
  • Great place for kids 18months-10 years to explore. 1 hour is enough time to play in all areas. I think it was slightly expensive considering the children's area is a bit small.
