John Hutchings Museum of Natural History
This little local museum is housed in beautiful, 1920s, Spanish mission style building orginally built as a veteran’s memorial hall, city hall, and public library. The museum has a little bit of everything – local history, Native American artifacts, dinosaur bones, and a very good mineral collection.
It’s not everyday that you can hold a 2 million year old piece of dinosaur poop!
The sidewalk is sloped and the entry door opens out so entering the museum is a bit akward. Some of the exhibit in the cases are too high to easily view. One room of the museum is accessed by steps only.
RVs can be parked on the street or in the large lot behind the museum.
