Petaluma has a unique and fascinating history as a bustling river town during and after the Gold Rush, then the “Chicken and Egg Capital of the World,” and now a town that loves its history.

The Petaluma Historical Library & Museum invites you to join a “Petaluman of Yesteryear” dressed in period attire for a guided tour of our historic downtown.

Learn about Petaluma’s incredible architecture (including 8 sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places) and other important and interesting facets of our town’s history. You’ll be informed by your docent’s historical knowledge and entertained by their characters’ stories.

Tickets are $10, and free to student and kids under 18. Meet on the steps of the Museum at 4th and B Street to embark on your trip back through time.
