“A Piece Of History”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Well-preserved buildings, with modern folks walking around in period costume. Good information plates. Whilst we were there, there was a re-enactment of a cannon firing (which was extremely loud, but good fun).

“Quick look back into history”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

If you are touring the mission, check this place out also. It's included in the admission and you can quickly step back into history and catch a glimpse of what it was like in Sonoma before tourism and air conditioning. There is a video to explain what you see and some interesting artifacts, too.

“Review of Chapel and Fort”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

The Spanish life in California was interesting. The effect on the Native Americans and the fact they put up very little resistance gives insight into the lifestyle which seems laid back.

“Nice History”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

A restored Army barracks from early 1800's. I enjoyed looking at the layout of the room, period furnishings, and how it was constructed. And, it is free.
