San Joaquin County Historical Society & Museum

11793 Micke Grove Road, Stockton, CA 95240 - United States




The San Joaquin County Historical Museum reveals the rich heritage of the region, from the Miwok and Yokuts Indians, to the development of modern agriculture and to Charles Weber – the founder of Stockton and the first farmer in the area.

Nestled on 18-acres in beautiful Micke Grove Regional Park, the atmosphere and the charm of the Museum encourages friendly family outings, picnic lunches, and strolls through our many exhibits and buildings while you gain valuable knowledge of the rich history of San Joaquin County.

The Museum offers educational experiences that showcase the county’s traditions of ingenuity, innovation, and invention – with emphasis on San Joaquin County’s singular contributions in agriculture – to promote community pride, continued learning, and an appreciation of regional history among County residents and visitors.


Our newest exhibit, "Faces & Places of San Joaquin County" is now open for viewing in the Helen Weber-Kennedy Gallery.

Over the years, people came to San Joaquin County from around the world with dreams of making a better life for themselves and their families. Many came by choice, while others came seeking refuge as a result of war or political turmoil. They brought with them their unique cultural traditions and customs.

Featuring fourteen framed images from the Museum’s photo collection, "Faces & Places" highlights and celebrates the diversity and cultural wealth of San Joaquin County.

The San Joaquin County Museum is currently open to visitors Friday - Sunday 10:00am - 4:00pm
