Upcoming Exhibits and Walking Tours


2015 Exhibits

August 29 - September 26: Journey Stories
This is a traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution called “Journey Stories” from the national Museum on Main Street program. The tales of how we and our ancestors came to America are a central element of our personal heritage. From Native Americans to the new American citizens and regardless of our ethnic or racial background, everyone has a story to tell.  Our history is filled with stories of people leaving behind everything, families and possessions, to reach a new life in another state, across the continent, or even across an ocean.

October 3 - November 8: Indian Life
This exhibit displays artifacts, pictures, baskets, and information about the Indians who once lived in the San Ramon Valley.

November 17 - January 3: Christmas Memories
The tradition continues with this popular exhibit. The display will include an 1890’s Christmas tree, Santa’s Workshop, flying Santa and reindeer, model train and more! The museum will be open for an open house following the lighting of the Danville Old Oak Tree on Friday, November 27. Watch for dates when Santa will be visiting the museum!
