Have not been on our last trip as there was no a special exhibition and we had visited before. It is an interesting old home done in period antiques. If there is a special show than the tour is more engaging.
We stumbled across this museum and were so happy we did! The person who conducted our small tour group was incredibly well versed and obviously loved his job. Many interesting artifacts are to be seen in this relatively compact museum. Others in our tour group...More

Being from Humboldt County, California, and having worked at Humboldt State University, I am always interested in everything "Humboldt." This is a lovely old colonial home, filled with church and period items. Worth a visit.
