  • We've come a long way. In some ways. Really enjoyed my visit here and the live animals are a great touch. 
  • 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.
  • I really enjoyed the visit there, which takes you 150 years back, to the days of the western movies, when all the area was pretty wild. I also wrote a post, describing this lovely museum, and you are invited there as well, but it can't be linked here.
  • As Los Angeles City Cultural Landmark #1, the Leonis Adobe Museum is dedicated to restoring, preserving, and sharing the last of the old west. Here, you can experience California ranch life of the late 1800s…visit a Victorian-style early Los Angeles home… see what a jail was like in the Wild West…enjoy a picnic in picturesque Calabasas Park with its antique ironwork and lovely gardens. The Leonis Adobe was the home of Miguel Leonis, known as the King of Calabasas. The museum features his authentically furnished two-story Monterey-style adobe with original buildings, period livestock, gardens and a vineyard--all part of Leonis' recreated ranch where he once ruled the territory. The Leonis Adobe Museum offers Public Tours, Educational Field Trips, Group Tours, Scout Tours and Ground Rentals. Memberships are also available with many benefits. Special Events are held throughout the year. The Leonis Adobe is a California legend you won't want to miss!
  • Fun local museum for my two girls. Right off the freeway in Calabasas, and within walking distance to shopping and great food. The animals at the Adobe were a plus. Staff very friendly and extremely knowledgeable on the Adobe and local history. A must visit for any local or tourist traveling through Calabasas. Very well maintained ground and artifacts.
  • Truly a good place to see the things as they were in 19th century. I loved to be there.
