“More than a museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2011

Donated for public enjoyment by the same businessman who rescued much of historic Main Street, Kelley House is locally maintained as a fine small museum that also houses a regional archive of historic documents and photographs and sponsors frequent walking tours and events in the Historic District. Check the website before your visit for updates on current events and attractions.

“Kelley House Museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2011

Liked learning the history of the house and it's nearby surroundings. Also a walking tour of the town was included, however, because of the weather, we toured while inside our motor coach. Was quite interesting.

“A facinating wonder back in time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2007

The Kelley House Museum and associated research center is a wonderful haven for those who love the unique and the history of any town. The Kelley House was restored with passionate Village energy in the '70s and remains the only place to find each weekly Mendocino Beacon since publication. The locals who volunteer are always happy to give you the long or short of it in the museum tour and have the tales of a wild lumber town and the hippie invasion to tell! The passion of the Docents make them a great information source for the must do and eat in town. Don't see museam and walk on by. See the best of all Mendocino and go on in. Please leave donation of course. Museum is open on Thurs thru Sun on our 4/2007 visit with limited hours. Please check. The research office is open Mon - Fri and yet the carpets were needing cleaning on our thursday of visit. In other words confirm hours. Megan will be happy to hear you came, just tell her Caren sent you. Oh, I forgot the authentic period antiques for those who cherish or even just kind of like antiques. Go here after lunch at the Mendocino Hotel for the best of historical flashbacks!
