Mission Statement

The mission of the Historical Association is to provide meaningful learning experiences for the county's residents and guests with special attention devoted to children's programs.

Description

The San Mateo County Historical Association operates three historical sites: the San Mateo County History Museum in Redwood City, the Woodside Store in Woodside, and the Sanchez Adobe in Pacifica

The History Museum is located in the old San Mateo County Courthouse in downtown Redwood City. Built in 1910, the History Museum features professionally designed exhibit galleries and is, itself, a historical work of art. The museum approaches history in a unique, topical manner by looking at the county's natural resources, transportation, suburban life, commerce, and the diversity of its people.

Our exhibits give students an opportunity for experiential learning. Teachers tell us that, through hands-on experiences, students are much more likely to learn, appreciate, and integrate historical information into their current lives.

We also offer an exciting calendar of public programs including workshops, lectures, family days, and preschool story time.
