“The kids loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

A really neat place for the whole family! The kids loved it! It's also right in the center of Redwood City. So you can make a day of it going to restaurants, movies, etc. It\s also really close to the CalTrain.

“A Wonderful History Museum!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

I visited this museum 5+ years ago when it was just beginning to gather and present what is available for the public now.

Now it is such a pleasure to visit! Their exhibits are clever and informative. It is also visually pleasing! The only areas lacking in historical depth were the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office, and individual police departments in the county.

It is well worth the $5.00 admission . I would love to make an appointment with the archivist for a return visit!

“A Present of Past and Future”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Firstly the architecture of the building is very fine with beautifully painted high rise dome inside. Its a landmark to learn about the past as well as the future. Some of my favorites are "Courtroom", "Nature's bounty " and "Ships of the world" .. If you have a kid, then you would surely want to visit this museum as it very informative and educational..There a lot of videos, messages and to do activities even for adults .. More over there's a large sit out place outside the museum to have fun with family. The fee is only $5 for adults and definitely worth a visit.
