  • This museum is a bit small but loaded with knowledge and artifacts! They even have some hands-on experiences. My 3-yr-old was intrigued. (It's free for 5 and under.) I was surprised to find a beautiful pond/small lake outside being that this place it right in downtown. Ask them about their 500-yr-old oak tree too.
  • Great museum with many interesting Native Californian exhibits including artwork, pictures of local Native Americans, amazing stories, and even a dugout canoe!
  • Located in midtown Sacramento at the Sutter's Fort State Park, a great collection of Native American culture in California.
  • Emotional ride through this little gem. It's small, but if you take your time an absorb it all.. there's a slew of information. I highly recommend this place.
  • First time in years that it was opened to the public, hit and miss ,i guess.
