  • A great local museum. Recently, remodeled with more local displays. Several tablets and quizzes make it an interactive experience. They also provide the ¬†Ed Kinney Speaker Series¬†where a individual dresses in their period an performs as though the were a famous person. The volunteer staff is always friendly and willing to provide more information, when available.
  • I always visit when I'm in town: Last year, it was during a beautiful wedding exhibit, that had dresses from Pleasanton's History. The Christmas Tree is always beautiful, as well! Looking forward to visiting the next time I'm in town!
