The docent was very knowledgeable and gave us some interesting tidbits. Without visiting the museum we would have never known the fascinating reason for Atascadero and how it came to be. Worth taking 45 mins of your time, if in Atascadero.

The museum is in a small home with tons of historical displays & facts about the area. Individuals of all ages, yes young children find it interesting and learn more about the history from 1800- current. Plan on spending 30- 60 minutes there.

They displayed historical items that were interesting and told a story. It was very interesting and we leaned more about the city.

Located in one of the original Colony homes and very near the newly renovated Rotunda Building at the Sunken Gardens, the Colony museum is the perfect place to get to know Atascadero. If you have recently moved to Atascadero you should definitely stop in for...More

Not a lot for outsiders, but a fine collection of pictures for locals interested in Atown history. There is a nice rose garden and the grounds are well maintained in native plantings. It is a nice venue for parties or receptions.
