  • Fun, educational, free admission. A very fine presentation of the history of Paso Robles. Did you know that Paso Robles was at one time The Almond Capital of the World? (1920) (Disclosure currently a docent at the Museum but was a yearly visitor for over 25 years. Always something new to see!) 😀
  • We called in on a quiet Friday afternoon. Lots of interesting exhibits. Very friendly and informative staff.
  • I was pleasantly surprised. It was a lot bigger than I thought it would be. A lot of history packed inside to be opened like a time capsule one amazing section at a time. My grandson really enjoyed his time there. I highly recommend for anyone who has a love for history. Let's not forget how awesome the volunteers were.
  • Love roaming around & hanging out with these folks!! Learn so much about this great area!! Check out my videos! And pics!!
  • There is so much. You can't see all of it. Amazing
