  • This Indian Museum only occupies one large gallery, is outdated and dark and in need of renovation, but there is a lot here if you take the time to look closely and read the placards. Different...

  • This place where in our city is probally the best little museum to visit not only because I'm Native American 😉but because it's a small but very nice place to visit with the family to learn of The Native culture. And there's so many things to see and the gift shop has very beautiful gifts ! It's also very tranquil environment out side there a water fountain in lake and Sutter Fort right across the way that is so worth visiting also. if you are a history junkie like us ! It's not borin at all! We would definitely take our family again 🤗 would of posted pics of inside but we weren't allowed to take pics inside I believe
  • Part of our interesting, local history. The museum is small and currently $5 per adult and $3 per youth.
