  • If only the employees there were more passionate about their work. They saw me looking at the display, and proceeded to put a screen blocking me from viewing the display. I had to go behind the screen to snap this picture.
  • 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.
  • Very historic,lots of pet river town history
  • That Place Very cool it brings back memories
  • Local history. Military, lots of posters. Showed a video of ww1 code talkers. Chococtaw Indians.
