Maidu Museum & Historic Site, Roseville

(4.5/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
The Maidu Museum & Historic Site offers visitors a unique combination of a world class museum and 6,000 year old Native Californian Indian village site. Graced by oak trees and bordered on the south by a branch of Linda Creek/Strap Ravine, the nature area offers a loop trail that takes you past ancient petroglyphs and hundreds of bedrock mortars for grinding acorns; evidence of Nisenan / Southern Maidu occupation of the site for thousands of years.

Inside the museum you'll find exhibits portraying the Maidu way of life as well as an art gallery featuring the talents of contemporary Native Americans. The Museum Gift Shop offers a wide selection of books about Native Californians, handmade jewelry, minerals, arrowheads, other cultural artifacts and many nature-related items.

  • Neat but very small. I was hoping for more on their events. Just a little lacking. Maybe they will be better in the summer months.
  • Visited with a school group. Awesome place to lean about the local Maidu native Americans.
  • The nature hike was fun. Only wish cameras were allowed and partons had the freedom to explore without a guide.
  • I've been in the tour and that make it so interesting all the information about the native American.
  • I made a mistake by going on a Saturday, only because I did not have enough time to see everything! I thought it was amazing and next time I'll go when its not raining so I go on the guided tour. I want to camp there!
