More than just a railroad depot museum, Depot Park Museum is a lovely, shaded park with an old-fashioned gazebo, benches and picnic tables. The museum itself, is in the Sonoma Depot building, with a cattle car, refrigerated car and caboose, poised on the tracks. The Museum was dedicated in 1978, and opened in 1979, after a fire destroyed the original building in 1976. The museum houses displays on the Great Bear Flag Revolt, the Miwok Indian period, and Rands Room which is full of railroad memorabilia. Admission is free.
