History of San Mateo County

The San Mateo County History Museum has a wide variety of exhibits and attractions that your whole family is sure to enjoy. This wonderful museum is only about 10 minutes from the Lia Hotel. A favorite exhibit is the Sanchez Adobe. Here you are able to explore Don Francisco Sanchez’s adobe which was completed in 1864. This unique experience provides visitors with a glimpse into life when California was still a part of Mexico. Similarly, the Woodside Store exhibit is a restored county store that displays goods from the 1880s. The Charles Parsons’ Ships of the World exhibit features 24 model ships, ranging from the height of sea exploration all the way to World War II battleships. These are only a few of our favorite exhibits. When you take the time to fully explore the museum, you are sure to find your own favorites - while making memories that will last a lifetime.
