We found this museum to be very interesting especially in terms of the Native Tribes that used to inhabit all of California. There is a wealth of information contained in here, and it's presented beautifully. We would certainly come back here to visit.
IIs a cute little museum and gives a good insight in how the California's Indian went true there lives. From useful to pretty things, it's all there telling the story. It's set in a pretty park that's worth some time also.
