This local museum has the right amount of history to keep you interested. It isn't 't very big but several rooms filled with items and pictures from the start of the city of Alameda. It is located by downtown Alameda.

Yes! It small (like our island) but well organized, full of delightful memorabilia and displays, and staffed by knowledgeable volunteers. Well worth a visit if you are a visitor or a local.
