Think about Sacramento’s past and the Gold Rush comes to mind. But that’s only part of the story...

The Sacramento History Museum is dedicated to Sacramento’s rich and diverse history. Our galleries and exhibits explore the history and stories of the area’s first inhabitants, the pioneers who settled here during the Gold Rush, life on the farm, and more. The Museum also features interactive exhibits that bring to life the people and events of Sacramento and its unique place in the history of California and the nation.
