  • I was there last weekend, and it looked like the building was closed (I mean “wood board shut” closed)... can anyone confirmed that this museum is still in operation? Have they relocated somewhere...

  • As I was riding today I noticed a museum opened sign. Since I did not realize there was a museum there I decided to visit and, was happily surprised! Although the gardens are a bit dormant now you can tell they look great in the spring and summer there was an old garage and printing press to see along with many vintage and antique items inside the house. There was a nice young lady there giving tours and answering questions, she seemed very knowledgeable, I only over her talking to other patrons while I was exploring. And interesting historical house in Palo Alto I will visit again and look closer at all it has to offer.
  • Very Beautiful Museum. Well put together with amazing history. The workers here are very friendly and inviting and very knowledgeable. I also love that the place is wheelchair accessible.
