The Museum at Coyote Hills has a nice presentation of animal and plant species that are at the park, as well as some information on the Ohlone Indians that settled the area. They also have a very nice little store and well maintained restrooms.

This is a small museum with quite good displays and exhibits which give fabulous insights on the history of the local inhabitants. The garden area outside the museum building is also quite beautiful.
