“Beyond parking lot from SSHP”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

This hidden gem is the local history guild's museum. Look beyond the Bocce Ball courts on the north end of the Sonoma SHP parking lot. It is marked by three or four rail cars. One end is devoted to the depot history and trains, the other end on Sonoma history. Glad I did not miss seeing this.

“Interesting museum that reflects the unique history of Sonoma”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

When I write this review, I am approaching it from the view of a long-time docent. The museum cites history from the time of the native Americans to the history of the famiy of Mariano Vallejo to the Bear Flag Republic(1846) to the turn of the century (1900s) to the story of the railroads which ran until around 1960. It has a little something for everyone. It is open three days a week: Friday, Sat and Sun from 1 to 4 p.m. Admission is free and trained docents are available to tell the stories of the Sonoma Valley. There is a current exhibit about Sonoma's adobes.
