I enjoyed my visit. Historic site on a very small piece of property. The main house is wood clad adobe, with redwood floors. Children would enjoy the farm animals. Several displays of farm equipment and wagons. You only need about an hour to see everything. $3 to park in museum lot.

This site is great for someone wanting to understand the early roots of the greater Los Angeles area. Docents are dressed in period garments and are well informed about the history of the area. They also cater to children with many hands-on activities and an opportunity to feed the resident farm animals. California residents should also check out the "Passport... More

The Leonis Adobe is a wonderful place to show kids a bit of California history. The docents are well-versed and friendly. Kids and adults enjoy seeing both the home with the wonderful history and antiques as well as the grounds and animals.

If you're in the western San Fernando Valley, don't miss out on visiting the Leonis Adobe Museum. It is in the Calabasas Historic District and near some great eateries (but also a little bit of a walk to the Calabasas Commons where there are more places to eat/shop). Kids find it interesting since there are farm animals but as a... More

Leonis Adobe is a small historical site run by some very sweet docents...I had arranged a very small group tour and they devoted about three hours to us first showing a film and then taking us on a tour of the adobe and the outbuildings, gardens, and animal pens. Kids were thrilled with whole thing and the parents felt as... More

The Leonis Adobe is small and doesn't take long to go through. It's well-preserved, has an interesting history and is a fun place for children because there are a few barnyard animals to see.
