The San Joaquin County Historical Museum reveals the fascinating history of the region, from the Yokuts and Miwok through Captain Charles Weber (founder of Stockton and first farmer in the area) and the development of modern agriculture. The Museum has eight exhibition buildings, four historic buildings — including the Charles Weber cottage (1847) and Calaveras School (1866) — and features room dioramas of Weber family furnishings, a children’s gallery, and large displays of hand tools and agricultural equipment.What's Happening

Visit and pet a variety of live farm animals every Friday and Saturday from March 7 through May 31 at the Critter Corral. The petting zoo has two mama sheep, Mocha and Cloud, with twins. Mocha's twin lambs needed help being born, so they are being bottle-fed twice-a-day. Needless to say, they are very, very friendly! Pixey, the pig had a litter and the two piglets are now almost 4 months old. Besides these babies, the Critter Corral has Twin Nigerian dwarf kids, a mini Hereford calf, and a baby llama that will arrive in March or April.
Encounters with the animals are free with regular Museum admission, Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
