  • ...or maybe most can't comprehend or appreciate the days when Wells Fargo was the link that communicated you to the rest of the world, as it was defined back then. The Concord Stagecoach is on display...  more »
  • This was a real find; we had an hour or so to kill and this place ticked the box. There are plenty of touchy feely exhibits and we both learned a lot about the history of the bank.The stage coach ride...  more »
  • An excellent small museum and it's free. Well worth a visit. There are a lot of exhibits including a mock up of the inside of a carriage and morse code simulators. You are allowed to touch a surprisin...  more »

  • Came here on a school field trip with my son. I was impressed with the amount to of things kids can learn there, especially older methods of travel and communications, such as stagecoach and telegraph. You can pick up and use some of them to get experience what it was like. We had a guided tour for the field trip so that was very nice. It's directly connected to their main branch. Best of all, the museum is free to come in and browse. They are closed on the weekend though so plan accordingly.
  • I found this by accident just wandering around taking photos. Such a nice surprise and free! Free is good. There is a great display of money and coinage from many different banks back when they all printed their own. Scales gold was weighed on and lots of photos. A Stagecoach display to get into and try and imagine how in the world 9 people would ever fit in there and spend days traveling together! Push a button and there is the Stagecoach driver telling you what to expect and scenery going past the window. If you sit in the driver's seat there are different videos showing and telling you how the Horses are driven, harnessed and otherwise controlled and directed by the driver. This place is only a few blocks from Montgomery street BART right on Montgomery. Well worth dropping in to spend a little time
  • Nice little place to visit when one is in the area. I especially liked how it was quiet and not too crowded, so I can take my time with each exhibit. I visited on a weekday in the early afternoon, so that could have been a factor.
  • Awesome place to take 4th grade class as it toes right into the state standards for gold rush era. Artifacts to see and play with!
  • This was an unexpected surprise. First, you can't beat free. But it's an actual museum quality experience. The displays are informative, interactive and very well done. I can't recommend this highly enough. It's worth spending an hour or two here.
