  • Preserving history and the heritage of this valley is the noble cause of this museum. Currently setting up for its next exhibition of pioneer woman, there is not alot to see right now. There is on display, some Chinese New Year items. Great place to browse around, this 1891 Train Depot.
  • I enjoyed learning more about the Alamo, Danville and San Ramon areas from the past. I was familiar with some history but this fills in many gaps, with its rich collection of research books you can read there. I particularly liked reading more about Iron Horse Trail and the railroad’s history through time (in our valleys). I wonder what they’ll use our freeways and roads for when our transportation methods advance! On display we’re the writings of women from the period of history in the early-, mid- and late-1800’s, through the turn of that century. So many people emigrated to California, to our area, from all over the world. I respect how hard people worked in those days; not much came easy! Reading through other reviews from the past, I’m excited to get to see other exhibits from time to time. Fun fact: there’s rope of every width jammed into the gaps in the wooden floor, probably to minimize cold air and people getting stuck in a crack! Haha!
