John Muir National Historic Site, Martinez Reviews - Write a Review

  • Nice place to see and learn about John Muir and the impact he had on preserving nature and wildlife. Very insightful. Best part it's free to visit. The people are were very nice and engaged in answering questions.

  • Incredible historical site in the heart of urban East Bay. The well-maintained Italianate Muir home is an impressive site of historic interest, but just as good is the surrounding landscape, including orchards, walking paths, and the Martinez Adobe, which commemorates the Anza expedition. Well worth a detour off the freeway.

  • Absolutely amazing! Beautiful. Stunningly and realistically captures life from another era. So much to see and partake in. Tours are a must do! Be prepared for a few flights of stairs and a bit of a walk around the awesome property.

  • Love it! If you are a fan of John Muir, California History, or the history of Yosemite, you have to take a visit to the Muir house. You can go inside the house and all the way upstairs into the bell tower for a nice view. There is good clean bathrooms, not too much walking, and a good informational shop.

  • Stopped by to check out John Muir's residence in Martinez. A great old adobe structure is also located on the property. A must see for California history.
