What a welcome we got here from Jill, so knowledgeable and so passionate. A small treasure of a place. The panoramic photo of SLO in 1906 is a gem.

Entered into this place because I was looking for map for their podcast. Unfortunately they didn't have one but the podcast is so good you don't need one anyway. A very pleasant way to spend some time discovering SLO.

The museum docent, Victoria, was so informative and friendly. We learned about how the city of San Luis Obispo was started, really personalized our visit!

Very nice. Small, but educating. One room was closed for repairs, but overall, worth a "pop in". A room for children was interesting for this adult. The "librarians" office from the 19th century.
