Located a block or two off the Sonoma Square, beautiful old Sonoma setting. Durning Crab Season, you have to order their famous Crab Cannelloni, this dish is to die for. Also a great wine selection of local wines from S Sonoma Valley.

I got a preview of the railroad exhibit and it is most interesting. It focuses on the railroads of Sonoma Valley. There were several railroads that ran through the valley, both of freight (fruit turkeys, milk, nuts) and passengers who came from San Francisco to our resorts and hotels.

Looking for the world like another hokey tourist trap, this is building is a replica of the original 'Train Station' where visitors could board real scheduled passenger/freight trains. Trains that were called "Puffer Bellies" or more simply "Choo-Choos". Disbelief, skepticism, wonder - hey look; there's a nice bike path. With pedestrians walking along it! Lots of them. And, wonder of... More

It's not the greatest local museum in California but they have done a great job giving you a feel for part of old Sonoma. It's a short easy walk from the Plaza and well worth the visit. Also kid friendly

Find out all about the early days of Sonoma. Great photos from when the plaza was still the parade grounds.

We were out bike riding (June 2013) when we stumbled upon this museum. When we saw it was closed for the day (Monday) we were turning away when the door opened and we were ushered in by a lady who was the museum director. 'I'm here anyway, so why not come in'!. Spent an enjoyable hour there. There is a... More

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.

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... More
