Learn how a player piano works and listen to an original Edison phonograph. Check out the carreta that was once housed at the San Fernando Mission and learn about the railroad flagman’s shanty and Lankershim Reading Room. There’s much to see and do, including brick making and often quilting and other hands on demonstrations for people of all ages. We hope to see you there. Stop by between 1-4 p.m. Parking and Admission are free. Donations are greatly appreciated. Private, school & group tours are also available (please call 818-365-7810 for more info).
