  • We’ve been several times and always enjoy it when we go back. The video of John Muir’s life is really informative and interesting. Going into the house we found a park ranger that told us so many things we didn’t know about the family. She was GREAT! The view from the Belvedere was great too!
  • It's a beautiful slice of California history. Not only John Muir's home, but also the oldest Adobe structure in Contra Costa County. AND, no entrance fee!i!
  • This National Historic Site should be on anyone's list if a lover of our National Park system. John Muir's diligence, activism and writings brought about a historic shift of thought through the creation of protected lands. His passionate words and ceaseless dedication not only established Yosemite National Park but also helped to protect Grand Canyon NP, Mt Rainier NP, Petrified Forest and Glacier Bay. A visit here allows one to see his home, the office and desk where he wrote his many powerful works, and a small portion of the estate's remaining orchards.
  • Its free and a great 2 hour excursion into the history of john muir and the formation of our national parks. Start with the 15 minute movie in the entrance area, then explore muirs house and the grounds at your own pace. I learned a lot about protecting our natural landscapes, history of the area, and and loved looking at the old archetecture.
  • Fantastic rangers with a lot of knowledge and enthusiasm. The majority of this park is accessible.
