Haggin Museum History Collection
The museum’s extensive history galleries offer families a chance to travel back in time to learn more about Stockton and California history. Exhibits focus on area Native Americans, the Gold Rush, agriculture in the San Joaquin Valley, historic firefighting equipment, as well as shipbuilding and other Stockton industries. Visitors will see Victorian-era rooms from a San Joaquin Valley ranch home, a recreated local flour mill, and a turn-of-the-last-century California town that includes a one-room schoolhouse and a Chinese herb shop. Beautiful Native American baskets, a Holt Caterpillar tractor, the infamous trunk of Emma LeDoux, and a World War II jeep are among the thousands of historical treasures permanently on display.
