  • It was a small, lovely museums. There are plenty of whole families with children a single column, but some raucous Daniel. Expect something special rather than a small wonder inside and outside of the Museum is the place to find it.

  • Hidden Gem of Historical Information! This small recreation of a town is quaint and charming with it's repurposed and recreated period buildings. Aside from providing a home for historical records and mini-museums representing many of the founding cultures that make up the bay area, but they also have some salvaged landmarks. I was here for a school tour, but I would love to go back another time and dig a little deeper.
  • most of the times that I have been here have been for automotive related events which this place makes a great background for. Even with out the auto events though this place is a great spot to visit. Plenty of exhibits plus a lot of info on the history of the area. A great spot for Holiday photos as well once their decorations are up.
  • Parking can hold about 12 cars, most building are close so you'll be able to enter about 4 of 20 of them. Nice place to walk.
  • My family and I enjoy all the festival hosted here, we also like all the Victorian homes located here. Definitely a piece of history.
  • Very interesting place to wander around. Sometimes a place inside you really want to visit is closed, because they run on volunteers.
