    This is a neat place. They have interesting docents, a small farm (kids can feed the animals), and it's a historic landmark in the middle of Calabasas. It's worth a stop.  more »

    Excellent tour of the adobe that dominated thousands of acres as the largest ranch in the southwest valley in the 1800s. Youg et to feel the challenges of life on the frontier.  more »

    Well worth an hour or so to tour round, see the old ranch house and learn about the occupants, see how they lived, their old equipment, both for household and farming. Also to learn about the settlers...  more »

    The museum actually combines two in one: the actual Leonis Adobe plus the house of Leonis' friends that was brought to here from LA and thus saved from destruction. The old ladies working at the place are just adorable! The history of the ranch is very interesting and dramatic, but I would recommend you to make your own research about it. The story of Miguel Leonis, the Frenchment who came to California to pursuit his dreams, as did Millions of others, would make a wonderful Hollywood movie. At adobe area, there are a cute little garden, a tiny fountain, a horses, a very friendly sheep and goats, a lot of the authentic "old stuff" enough to imagine how people lived a hundred years ago.

    The Guides are wonderful and they are not all a bunch of old ladies.

    A fun site and a lot to do. Located next to the Sagebrush Cantina and the Calabasas Park, this location has a lot of history and interaction.
