San Leandro History Museum



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 Indians, 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.
Admission is free.
