Make sure that you take one of the docent tours. It's a short tour but worth the time, and especially ask about the ghosts. The history is quite colorful and the grounds are kept authentically.

The Leonis Adobe is a nice place to stop for an hour or so when traveling in either direction on the 101 freeway. It is 1 minute from the freeway exit. They have several historic structures, the main Leonis adobe, the plumer's house - moved here from Hollywood. The water tower, barn and more. They have 2 percheron horses, 3... More

This is a good location to visit a part of LA's history. Its own history is rather amusing as well and the historical site is fairly large comparatively speaking. Good for the family but Africa hot in the hot summer days. Bring a hat, it can be dusty if windy as most of its dirt walking paths as was typical... More

The Leonis Museum is chocked full of history. The ladies that give you wonderful rid bits of info on the history and the family. They are incredibly knowledgeable regarding the history of the Leonis and Plummer Families. If you're lucky you will notice the energy of the Leonis family still dwells in the old house. Worth a visit

You would never guess there is a museum that runs parallel along the freeway. This is a cute little museum right off the freeway. It gives the history of one settler who came to Los Angeles and was quite a businessman who acquired land and built the Leonis Adobe. When you first arrive you enter thru the gift shop in... More

We went in the summer for a children's program. We got the tour of the outside, the working area, and the children learned how make a tortilla, and watched and helped to make a horseshoe. The excitement they had that day was talked about for days

Something for everyone. The Leonis Adobe Museum and house give you a great learning experience on the old west. I would recommend having one of the very knowledgeable staff members guide you through. There are also group tours you can arrange, call ahead to schedule. There is free parking.

Each year we take our kindergarten classes to see the Leonis Adobe. Each time it feels like we've stepped back in time. Although the city has grown up around it, the Adobe retains its historical beauty. The Adobe is surrounded by gardens and a small petting zoo. Docents are dressed in period costume.
