Nice place to spend a hour or two. See a lot of photo and other artifacts on the history of Ft. Bragg. No charge, just a donation required.

“Interesting photos and entertaining volunteer guide.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

We spent a pleasant 1/2 hour in the museum looking at old photos and objects. Don't miss the 750 year old acorns in the split piece of timber downstairs.
Very friendly and entertaining guide the day we were there. Well worth the suggested $2 per person donation.

“A peek back in history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Liked the friendly volunteer, and enjoyed being able to go upstairs and look out the windows of this old home. Very nice displays of old Fort Bragg and Mendocino County businesses in photos.

“Take a Trip Through Time to the Hey Day of Logging.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

Great museum with lots of logging history. Fascinating. I spent over 2 hours in this old victorian that's been converted to a museum. A must see if in Fort Bragg.

“HISTORY OF THE AREA AND LUMBER PRODUCTION”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

The guest House Museum is located in downtown Fort Bragg. The house was build in the 1850's during the formation of the community.

The staff and displays offer a glimpse into the days when large Redwood trees were cut by men using hand tools. There are hundreds of photos and numerous displays that tell an interesting story.

While there is no admission charge, donations are suggested.
