It's a quaint place tended by knowledgeable docents. The museum covers local interest with many historical photos of the conversion from agri-economy to high tech tilt-up buildings. It is surrounded by the Heritage Orchard of mostly Blenheim apricots and is still tended by the Olson family who sell the apricots on premise in late spring/early summer.

I don't know much about history. Here everything is historic but I didn't see anything which interests me.

It was fun to see some of the historical information when I returned back to Sunnyvale. The museum had some excellent photos and landmarks inside.

A good small Museum that explains the history of the orchards and the growth Sunnyvale down through the years. Moving from orchards to semi conductors and high-tech Sunnyvale is really the heart of Silicon Valley.

Given the rapid growth of Silicon Valley, it is amazing that many of the exhibits here survived. The museum is a bit crowded so might not be the best place for kids, but well worth a look-see!

He had his home milled to his specifications in Bangor, Maine and it was shipped around the Horn in 1850. It was assembled in Sunnyvale using wooden... More

Lot's of thought went into this museum and for a small museum there is abundant well presented information on the history of Sunnyvale. There is also a very nice gift shop.
