Kern County Museum

In addition to the many displays of Bakersfield history, walking through the park, visitors will see an early doctor's office, jail, Wells Fargo, gas station, hospital, and many other frontier buildings. With exhibits ranging from oil to fashion in old Bakersfield, there is something for everyone.

We hope you enjoy our work.
