“Nice Little Historical Museum!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

We visited this museum as part of an assignment/project for my son's third grade class after having lived in Corona for 15 years! I can't believe we had never visited this place before. It's quaint, short and sweet, but you can learn a lot about the history of Corona. So many interesting things have been and happened here in Corona! I recommend going to this museum for all Corona residents for sure! Take your kids. They have a little "scavenger hunt" on paper where the kids read questions and find the answers around the room. When they get the paper reviewed by the docent, they can ring the big bell!

“Interesting small museum”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

The city of Corona has a rich heritage of mining, car racing and citrus. This small museum covers much of Corona's history. Although more room would be wonderful, they fit a lot into the displays without looking too cluttered.

There are lots of artifacts specific to the town of Corona as well as period artifacts. The displays contain good information about them.

The museum itself is located on a piece of Corona history - the old Foothill Lemon Ranch. At one time in the early 20th Century, the small town of Corona was one of the world's largest producers of lemons. Sadly, nearly all the citrus groves are gone now.

I was surprised that nobody came out to greet us as we wandered through the displays!

This museum is worth a visit to discover the history of this city. Donations are suggested but not required.
