Intriguing Pomo Indian basketry, antique logging equipment and rich history await you at the Anderson Valley Museum. It is located in a century-old schoolhouse directly adjacent to Hwy 128 between Elk and Ukiah. Although the building is no longer used as a schoolhouse, as a museum it still teaches a great deal about the rich history of the Anderson Valley and Mendocino County. The museum is run by the Anderson Valley Historical Society, and primarily showcases what life was like for those hardy pioneers who chose to settle there. With a working sheep-shearing exhibit and blacksmith shop, children young and old will love this interactive form of education. The museum features Pomo Indian baskets and basketmaking tools, along with historic timber equipment. Bring your own lunch and enjoy a picnic in the picnic area, shaded by a redwood grove. The museum is open Saturdays and Sundays, 1 to 4 p.m., from February through November, and is closed December and January.
