Health Update:

In response to COVID-19, all of our museums as well as the archives and research center will be closed through Monday, April 13th at which point we will evaluate whether the closures should be extended. 

Ask A Curator

Ask a Curator

In an effort to make up for our doors closing, we are starting an online "Ask a Curator" service for the public. You can ask any questions about museums or local history on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and get an answer from a curator in our department.

One of the new directions we’ve been headed recently is making videos about our local history using our extensive photo collection. Here’s our first one about the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad through Placer County. Hope you enjoy it!MTM DVD front Cover Opens in new window
