The museum's big summer event is here!
When: Saturday, September 10, 2022, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Where: Sunnyvale Heritage Park Museum 570 E. Remington Drive
A ‘Walk Through Time’ will take all visitors, young and old, on a journey through local history, beginning with life 200+ years ago, then moving on through time to experience the evolution of Sunnyvale and its neighboring communities. Visitors will learn about the different groups of people who called this area home, catch a glimpse of their way of life, and experience hands-on activities from those long-ago days. Guests will have the opportunity to identify some of Sunnyvale’s earliest companies and what they brought to a changing city. The innovators of the late 1960s will also be introduced, allowing visitors to learn how their contributions led Sunnyvale from an agricultural community to the high-tech city identified today as The Heart of Silicon Valley.
