The California Museum, formerly known as the California Museum for History, Women, and the Arts, is our absolute favorite spot in Sacramento to go for a good history and culture lesson all in one all about the one and only Golden State. Located just one block from the Capitol Building within the current State Archives Building, this popular museum also houses the California Hall of Fame, another big draw to the location.
Explore exhibits and programs covering California culture and ethnic history, the museum working to ‘engage, educate, and enlighten’ you along the way. Leisurely explore California’s rich history throughout the museum with your group, California’s unique contributions to the world highlighted through its ideas and innovations throughout it's past and present. Learn about immigrants, family life, the Gold Rush era, and the general ‘California Dream’ while here, you'll even get a glimpse of the Hollywood side of the state within the entertaining onsite theater. Something you won’t want to miss out on is the six-story Constitution Wall, exploring the ideas that have made the state what it is today.
Note** California Museum guides and employees are all highly knowledgeable of the exhibits and California’s history in general. Docent-guided tours are always available for groups, along with boxed lunch options for groups larger than ten. For groups with young children or students, pick up some activity sheets, a bear flag kit, or learn about the artifact of the month. Research resources are available for students on immigration, the California missions, Japanese Internment camps, the Gold Rush, and more. If you are looking for a venue for a private event, there are several locations at the California Museum available for rental upon request.
