Mendocino County Museum

Mendocino County Museum


The Mendocino County Museum opens a window onto the past of the people and places that make up Mendocino County. Fascinating temporary exhibits change regularly; check online or give them a call to find out what’s current. An exhibit of antique toys will end in March of 2019, and two exhibits relating to World War I will open.

Be sure to visit favorite ongoing exhibits as well: an authentic “hippie” van replete with trippy hippie decor from the ’60s, real stagecoaches, a recreated old time creamery, Pomo and other local indigenous people’s basketry, relics from the ill-fated clipper ship Frolic, Seabiscuit’s friends, and a great museum shop featuring locally made gift items. Next door is Roots of Motive Power and its collection of steam-powered trains and machines.

The Mendocino County Museum is open Wednesday through Sunday, 10am to 4:30pm. Admission is free on the first Wednesday of each month, and more than reasonable the rest of the time.

WHERE: 400 E. Commercial St., Willits, Recreation Grove Park and the Willits Rodeo Grounds.
