The Museum's collection and exhibits are extensive, and a single page cannot do it justice. Below are a select few that are cultural and historical cornerstones of San Carlos. Come and explore the other exhibits when you have the time!


Sorcha Beru

Made by Claire Stewart, our collection of Sorcha Beru pottery is the only one publicly available in the Western United States. Our collection also includes sketches by the late artist.

Due to the large size of the collection, pieces from it rotate throughout the year.


San Carlos is right between San Francisco, pioneer of civil rights, and San Jose, pioneer of the Information Era. Experience how the current technological age has affected San Carlos.



Engine 1

Inspect Engine 1, a restored 1927 built Seagrave Fire Engine. Engine 1 dutifully served San Carlos and her residents, and now rests in the Museum.
