Discover the Past

Mákkin Mak Muwekma, 'Akkoy Mak-Warep, Manne Mak Hiswi!
We Are Muwekma Ohlone, Welcome To Our Ancestral Homeland!
(Greeting from the Muwekma Tribal Administration)

The History Museum tells the story of San Leandro. Wall murals and life-size portraits set the scene for exhibits. A timeline of San Leandro begins with the first people, the Muwekma Ohlone, and follows the changes through Spanish/Mexican California, the Gold Rush, the beginnings of a new American town and the developments of the 20th Century through World War II. Concept exhibits include People from Many Lands, Oysters and the Bayshore, and Agriculture and Industry.

History Readers

Join museum staff for a fun and casual book discussion. There is no required book or reading and no commitment. Each month staff and attendees share the historical book(s) they are reading. It is a great way to discuss books, learn about history and go-away with new books for your to-read list. 

The meeting takes place on the 3rd Thursday of ever month from 6pm to 7pm.
