Download the free ‘Guide by Cell’ from the museum’s website, and learn more about the historic old buildings – and secret underground tunnels! – of Downtown Pleasanton. The Alviso Adobe house is a rare example of an early American adobe, and there’s a replica old dairy in the surrounding park.

    You’ll be walking on sunshine

    Pleasanton residents clearly love a festival, and there are events, concerts and parades throughout the year, particularly in the summer months, when it’s sunny and warm. June and July are popular times to visit, with the county fair taking place at the Alameda County Fairgrounds and weekly open-air concerts in Lions Wayside Park.
