Interesting local history

Nice little museum. Rather small and cluttered, but I believe they'll be moving to a larger site soon. I enjoyed learning more about local history.

It is small but it is fun for family, great old hotel picks are cool anyone with 60's buff. Nostalgic and quaint.

Jam packed little museum that showcases over 100 yrs of history in the Pacific Beach area. Passionate curator, interesting pics and displays, including the 16 foot fiberglass boat plus ALL the random things that washed ashore 18 months after the tsunami in Japan. Donate a few dollars to this little museum and learn a lot. Get tourist info! Then walk... More

This a very small museum but well worth the half hour or so it takes to tour it. Where else can you see a collection of keys? It is free but a donation would be appreciated.

If you want to get a good idea of this area's history this is the place. The board is working diligently to procure funding for a new and modern museum (they have the land) but the charm will be lost that this old building holds.

Small, free, very local, quite charming. Does a good job describing the local social history. A lot of interesting stuff crammed into what was a small store. They have plans for a new space so don't pass up the donations box. We loved it.

Very interesting little museum. Unique local artifacts. A short walk from the Resort at Ocean Crest and access to the beach. Sort of an "End of the Road" spot with that beach community tie.

Step back in time. I love history and this little museum will surprise you. It is packed with information, stories, photo's of the past. I recommend any visitor of the area check this wonderful place out.

Will be great when they get their new building. Lot's of interesting stuff in a small space. Lot's of history of the North Coast. I always find an interesting book there.

Great little place to visit while on the North Beach. Bring your beach finds to Kelly the curator and he can give you a complete history on it.
