This museum is in wonderful historic building, that is worth checking out. It also has a nice gift shop with lots of California items and souvenirs. But, the museum itself is quite small, with just one exhibition at a time. It took about ten minutes to see the current exhibition. Had the museum been free, or a dollar or two, this would have been fine. But charging a $10 admission fee for such a small museum, is excessive and there are far better attractions all over the city to visit instead.
