The San Joaquin County Historical Museum reveals the rich heritage of the region, from the Miwok and Yokuts Indians through Charles Weber (founder of Stockton and first farmer in the area) and the development of modern agriculture. The Museum has eight exhibit buildings and four historic buildings, including the 1848 Weber house and the 1866 Calaveras School. Exhibits include room dioramas of Weber family furnishings, a children’s activity area, and large displays of hand tools and historic agricultural equipment. The 18-acre grounds include the Sunshine Trail living exhibition of native habitats and the Delta Water Path.

Washington Street: The Heart and Soul of Stockton Chinatown
Relive Stockton Chinatown when it was a colorful, bustling business district in the area now traversed by the Crosstown Freeway. "Washington Street: The Heart and Soul of Stockton Chinatown" is a special exhibition that will continue through May 28, 2017. The exhibition is a collaborative effort between the museum and the Chinese Benevolent Association of Stockton. Research included a series of “Show ‘n’ Tell” sessions with members of the Greatest Generation and their descendants. They delved into their memories and dusted off storage boxes, painting a remarkable picture of a time and a culture in Stockton that is in danger of being forgotten. "Washington Street" chronicles Sam Fow (Cantonese for “third city”) from the early 1900s through redevelopment in the 1970s.
