    Museum exhibits are changed two to three times a year, and focus on west Sonoma County history. Past exhibits have explored movies filmed in Sonoma County, historical toys, eclectic collections from the community, the World War II experience on the home front, the apple industry and apple festivals and fairs, early lighting devices, etc.

    The Museum features a small reference room, The Triggs Reference Room, containing historical reference books and a clippings file along with recordings of local personal histories. Open Thursday – Sunday: 1 to 4 p.m.
