*'''Hayward Area Historical Society & Museum & Gift Shop''', 22701 Main St, 510-581-0223, museum and gift shop closed until new facilities are opened up. Beginning with the Ohlone Indians and followed by Spanish settlers and missionaries, Hayward, San Lorenzo, Castro Valley and other communities clustered on the east side of San Francisco Bay, have long been a cultural crossroads. In the wake of the Gold Rush, former miners and new immigrants established homes and businesses, planted orchards and raised livestock setting down roots that grew into communities known for their diverse population, varied industry, and suburban living. The Hayward Area Historical Society tells the region's story at its downtown museum (closed until a new location is opened) and through tours of historic sites.

==Drink==
A comfortable corner bar, '''The Bistro''', [http://www.the-bistro.com] is really the only place to hear live music in the area on a consistent basis...almost every night. They usually have open mic on Mondays. Never a cover charge, and the music ranges from 1920's, blues, jazz, and rock on any day of the week. It's a small place on B street that's worth checking out if you're there after all the downtown shops close down. They serve salads and sandwiches and have tables that flow outside the establishment. No hard liquor, wines and 12 microbrews on tap, and good coffee.

'''The Funky Monkey''' (Main st between A and B), typical working class bar, with very sweet and lively bartenders, out of a casting call for the Suicide Girls (think pretty and lots of tattoos). Bartender Zephyr (wed-fri) makes a great Rum Punch. friendly, welcoming customers and staff.
 
'''Turf Club''' (Main St. between A and B) Very straight friendly, somewhat Western themed gay bar, with a large, sandy, funky patio area in back. They state they have existed since 1923. Very much a legendary local hangout. Not fancy, nothing to notice from the outside.
 
As of 2012, the downtown area has enough odd little hangouts and events, one can easily perambulate on a friday night and pick up on blues or other music at the Music Depot (944 B St.), "pub" crawl, see a movie at Cinema Place. Always plenty of parking.
