This is an interesting museum to visit because of Sonoma County's varied history. Did you know that the Russian's once had a toehold in California here in this county? Or that in 1906 there were more deaths per capita in Santa Rosa than in San Francisco due to the earthquake? There have been exhibits here that told these and other interesting stories. Nicely done exhibits with a modest entrance fee make this a great museum to visit. Make it a stop the next time you are in Santa Rosa.

Finally went into this museum and what a surprise. The exhibit space was larger than I expected. The exhibits were interesting. Plus the mall is nearby for shopping. And restaurant and a brewery are nearby also. What a gem.

You can count on this small museum to always have intriguing exhibits. The recent Tsar's Cabinet exhibit was excellent. The garden is very nice. This place is definitely worth a stop when you're in Santa Rosa.

This place is the old Santa Rosa post office and has wonderful architecture, not to mention interesting local art and a nice gift shop.

Very nice to have access to such a museum right in our back yard. Varied exhibits. Displays are set up to be self explanatory. Good option for out of town guests.
