“Interesting old time museum”

Lots of historical items in the large museum, with docents eager to share their knowledge. Definitely work a visit of between one and two hours.

“A little bit of everything”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

It would take forever to go through this museum and see everything. You just kind of have to pick an area and view everything there. Very eclectic. Fun.

“Worth your time to visit.”
Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

I recently visited Paso Robles for the local lapidary club's gem and mineral show. The museum was an added treat. I enjoyed the period rooms from years past. However, the rifle collection is terrific, but the office equipment was my favorite display. It shows the evolution of the type writer and other tools throughout time. The western history and cowboy paraphernalia was perfect and fit well with the ranching culture of the area. Well done!
