    I happen to come from two PIONEER Paso families, so I was biased in wanting to stop and see this museum when traveling recently. I was thrilled to see the old GENESEO SCHOOL, as my Great Grandfather a...  more »

    Tons of things to look at. Really interesting and free admission. Loved the fossils & rocks from the area as well as the old cars and wagons/carriages. Would love to go back again, especially considering they are building a scale model of the Paso hotel before it burned down.

    An eccentric trip back through not only the history of Paso Robles, but of California in general. The front of the museum displays rusting farm equipment, a one-room school house, and reproduction of Paso's first jail (with an original door and ball an chain). This does no hint at the eclectic collection of collections that the museum interior houses. Sections include displays on local fossils, native american, military history, farmers, cowboys and more. There is a whole warehouse of old tractors, many of which still roll down spring street during the annual "Pioneer Day." There is enough in the museum to warrant several trips and considering that there is no admission charge, why wouldn't you?
