The docent was very knowledgeable and gave us some interesting tidbits. Without visiting the museum we would have never known the fascinating reason for Atascadero and how it came to be. Worth taking 45 mins of your time, if in Atascadero.

A small locally-focused museum for those interested in the history of Atascadero. A nice well presented selection.

The museum is in a small home with tons of historical displays & facts about the area. Individuals of all ages, yes young children find it interesting and learn more about the history from 1800- current. Plan on spending 30- 60 minutes there.

Not a lot for outsiders, but a fine collection of pictures for locals interested in Atown history. There is a nice rose garden and the grounds are well maintained in native plantings. It is a nice venue for parties or receptions.
