  • I have had the opportunity to visit the Petaluma Museum and Library for various reasons. Many are the great events that take place here. I have learned so much about the history of Petaluma here from the displays and the helpful volunteers and the Petalumans of Yesteryear. The building itself is a historic site and the dome stain glass ceiling is something special to see. Every time I walk in there the volunteers and docents are friendly and very informative. They change up their exhibits periodically so it is never the same experience on each visit.
