Strolling through the paved streets of the San Jose History Park, you feel you've been transported back in time. Buildings of the past centuries were restored or relocated here, giving the park an old-times aspect.

Several galleries, museums are to be found here, each of them having different operating hours, so check them out before you head for them. I think this park is amazing, and I really liked spending time there.

Address:
1650 Senter Rd, San Jose, CA 95112, USA

Price:
Free admission.

Opening Hours:
Park is open from 11am to 5pm.
