Sacramento History Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • Really a lot of information here in regards to the development of Sacramento and California. While here we also booked an underground tour. Kind of pricey at $18.00 a person. We only went under 2 buildings. It's a one time thing worth doing because if you don't, you'll always wonder about what it's about.

  • Very nicely done and the presentation represents all groups who contributed to the building of the city. Bless the person who thought to put back the trees!

  • Only had a brief time to explore but some cool agricultural and historical info. A small section of old Sac Bee printing equipment and lots of nice displays of local artifacts. It's a great to shop around in Old Town and see the museum as well. Took the Sacramento Underground tour, which is good to do at least once if the history interests you.

  • Great place, good exhibits. Not too big. Only need about an hour to get through it. The staff is friendly. They have a military discount.

  • Honestly not much to it. The underground tour was pretty disappointing. Just a couple of rooms. The history itself is interesting however
