Interesting to learn of the history behind Wells Fargo and to see an authentic Wells Fargo stagecoach. Plenty of items to view and interactive displays to try. The fact that entry was free was an added bonus

The Wells Fargo Museum is great if you've got a half hour to kill downtown. Fun for young kids with lots of hands on activities. I especially enjoyed the old west art gallery. The best part - it's free!

All the family loved this free museum - very interesting and lots of great fun photo opportunities - if driving parking is not easy you will have to pay in a station

100 W Washington is the address for the Wells Fargo office tower. The Museum is attached to it but faces the street to the north - Adams. Thus the two addresses.
