Welcome to the wonderful museums of the City of Sacramento! We are excited that you have chosen to explore the heritage of California’s Capital City and some of its art, history, science and wildlife. For business or pleasure, we’re sure you will find Sacramento a memorable destination.
Sacramento is known as the “friendly” city – a good place to live, work, and play. Its museums reflect the diversity of our residents, our geography and our history. Here, you can do much more than simply read about the California Gold Rush – you can actually experience it!
While you are here, don’t miss the rest of what Sacramento has to offer. Our city has beautiful natural resources, exemplified by our trees and rivers. Sacramento offers abundant employment, shopping and recreational opportunities, special events and award-winning restaurants. It is our pleasure to host you.
