My cousin lives just a few blocks from this museum so we walked. Wow, Sunnyvale has quite a history. I really enjoyed learning how it started with the Murphy family.

I cherish my walks in the heritage park, though the museum is good but I stick to my regular walks around the lake. It’s a very serene place and has a calming effect on you. Find people doing yoga early in the morning.

The Heritage Museum has wonderful exhibits about the beginnings of Sunnyvale as founded by the Murphy family. It includes an exhibit about their wagon train trip to Ca. Upstairs are interesting exhibits about the technology companies who made Silicon valley.

People here are very friendly. They tell you about the history of Sunnyvale, who found the place and what changes happened over time. The old furniture of 18th century is too good... Specially the piano... And not to forget, whole room of hand made paintings......More

The docents make this heritage display centre a real gem. While the building and the displays are top-notch, we realise that what draws us back to learn a little more each visit is the staff. Happy tenth anniversary. Enjoy your knees-up!

It's a quaint place tended by knowledgeable docents. The museum covers local interest with many historical photos of the conversion from agri-economy to high tech tilt-up buildings. It is surrounded by the Heritage Orchard of mostly Blenheim apricots and is still tended by the Olson...More

It was fun to see some of the historical information when I returned back to Sunnyvale. The museum had some excellent photos and landmarks inside.

A good small Museum that explains the history of the orchards and the growth Sunnyvale down through the years. Moving from orchards to semi conductors and high-tech Sunnyvale is really the heart of Silicon Valley.
