The Stagecoach Inn Museum

Stagecoach Inn Museum

Family Fun, Guided Tours, Historical, School Tours, Speaker Series

Travel back in time to the late 1800s, when the West was still wild and the Conejo Valley’s wide-open spaces beckoned to settlers. Step into the parlor of the Stagecoach Inn Museum, where costumed docents will lead you on a guided tour and entertain you with tales of long ago.

There’s something for everyone at the Stagecoach Inn Museum Complex. In addition to the main building, you can visit a Chumash Ap (dwelling), a Spanish adobe, and walk inside a pioneer cabin.

In the Carriage House, learn about Charley Parkhurst, aka “One-eyed Charley,” known as one of the best stagecoach drivers in California (but whose real name was Charlotte). Then mosey over to the Blacksmith Shop filled with antique tools. Or relax on the Inn’s front porch while the kids ring the Timber School bell and imagine the fun to be had attending class in a one-room schoolhouse. (Where teachers had a ruler to rap knuckles and gave lashes to rule-breakers!)

The Museum showcases a superb collection of Gramophones and Victrolas, as well as an unusual but fascinating exhibit on sentimental hairwork. Have you ever wound up a Gramophone and listened to an old 78 rpm record play?

Rooms in the main building are decorated with antique furnishings and display all the awesome knick knacks that Victorians loved. Many items were donated by the families of original Conejo Valley pioneers. A separate area houses an extensive collection of Chumash artifacts.

The Emporium, museum gift shop, is full of collectibles, books about Conejo Valley history, and handcrafted items for sale, while the Heritage Rose Garden is abloom with century-old rose varieties.

School tours at the Stagecoach Inn Museum offer “hands-on” learning as students experience western frontier life and explore the Chumash Native People’s lifeways. Activities and lesson plans are aligned with California State content standards and are geared for students in third through fifth grades.

In addition to The Museum has a full calendar of exciting community events and changing exhibits.
