COVID-19 Update:

Due to the current number of COVID cases in Placer County, our museums have closed and will remain closed until the county is out of the Purple Tier.

In the meantime, we encourage visitors to get out and take our self-guided tours of local towns and museum grounds.

The Archive and Research Center is also closed at this time. We are still taking distance requests by phone or email. Please contact Curator of Archives, Kelsey Monahan, at (530) 889-7789 or [email protected] to submit your request for records.
