“Great Glimpse into the Past”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

This is a well preserved look into Simi Valley's past. Make sure you come during the limited hours with docent tours - only a $3 donation per person. The attendant at the museum was super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The museum itself is relatively small but interesting. A good way to spend a couple of hours.

“Good way to spend a Sunday afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

We went on a Sunday afternoon and it's a little town set up with original buildings & artifacts from the early days of Simi Valley. You can take a guided tour for a nominal fee of $3.00 per person where a docent will take you inside of each of the buildings and give you a little background history of each. Or you can walk around the grounds on your own but will be unable to gain access to the inside of each building as they are locked, so I recommend the guided tour. There is an orientation film to watch beforehand in the visitor center that gives you the history. Our docent took her time and answered all questions, so our tour took about 1 1/2 hours total. Plenty of free parking and clean restrooms on the premises. Worth a visit and spending a leisurely Sunday afternoon strolling thru the museum.
