Exhibits

Please visit our permanent Petaluma History Collection exhibited upstairs.  This newly-redone exhibit tells the story of Petaluma from its natural treasures such as the Petaluma River History to the trends and activities of prominent Petalumans who helped to make the town the gem of  agricultural, cultural and architectural  history which it is today. Our upstairs exhibit is ALWAYS FREE!
