We only popped in to get out of the rain (which passed very quickly) but found ourselves thoroughly enjoying our visit. Its an excellent museum which has been well thought out and has lots of interesting exhibits

The beautifully restored old courthouse building with lots of great info on the local area. Very interesting exhibits and the docents really enjoy talking to visitors about the city's history.

Lots of excellent restaurants all around the square so this is a good destination for a little history and then a nice lunch.

This museum continues to improve, from a small-town ho-hum museum to one worth making an effort to see. Very well curated with frequent new exhibits in a lovely historic domed courthouse. You will enjoy your time and it is good for kids as well.

Lots of interesting tidbits about San Mateo County History. Fun for our Grandaughter. It is nice that the exhibits change so there is always something new and fresh.

This is one of the best small museums we've been in. The exhibits were well done and very informative. We didn't expect much and received a lot.
