Glad we visited as this is a historic hidden gem to California’s history. My children studied this place in achiyanc it was remarkable to see it in person. The museum is well done with many recreated rooms of the time period when Sutter lived herre....More
The importance of California in the American Experience and in today's economy can not be overstated. And this spot -- is where all that modern history started. The surprise is that it is so accessible, simple and enjoyable. If you have any interest in early...More

We brought in water bottles and had no comments. I do not know if food or OTHER beverages are restricted. I believe the Indian Museum next door restricts food and drinks so it may apply as well. I will check.
