2014/02/23 Sunnyvale Heritage Park Museum
π 2014-02-23 00:00 in Museums
Jennifer and I biked to the Sunnyvale Heritage Park Museum which is only open a few hours 3 days a week, and it's well worth seeing if you live in the silicon valley: it shows the early history of Silicon Valley and how a lot started in what is still downtown sunnyvale with Murphy street on the rail line that is caltrain now.

The collection and history of the early settlers of this area are definitely worth a couple of hours to peruse through, and you can see the last patch of farmed land in sunnyvale that escaped from urbanization.

This machine blasted Xray at your feet so that you could see if your shoes fit well. It's only later that they figured out that this much radiation was not a great idea, especially for something as mundane as shoe fitting :)


We stopped at the park next door to see the water birds:


fancy fake birds to draw the other ones in :)
