California State Railroad Museum Sacramento 1.3 km away

Definitely one of the best railway museums I've been to, it covers a wide variety of topics, from the transcontinental railroad to modern high speed systems, and even includes a large model train exhibit, if that...

Crocker Art Museum Sacramento 1.4 km away
#2 of 30 Museums in Sacramento
The new wing contains, in my opinion, some of the best Ca Impressionism art (besides the Oakland and the Irving museums); a wonderful contemporary collection, comparable to MOMA; however, more CA artists are repre...

California State Capitol Museum Sacramento 0.4 km away
#3 of 30 Museums in Sacramento
Historic rooms (like the treasurer's office) have been turned into mini museums, but hands down, the highlight for me was the extraordinary displays they have from the state library of stunning, original early pri...
The Museum houses detailed history of California, from the indigenous population, early settlers, development, etc, etc. Loved the antiques, offices that still maintained their 'old' look and everything in here!

Old Sacramento Sacramento 1.3 km away
#5 of 30 Museums in Sacramento
Sacramento has done a fantastic job preserving and highlighting its early era architecture, while drawing locals and tourists alike to Old Town with many shops, restaurants, museums and other attractions.
Another great perk is old Sacramento is just up the way from many other history and art museums scattered across downtown including the capitol itself, if you go during summer you can also check out second Saturda...

Sacramento History Museum Sacramento 1.4 km away
#6 of 30 Museums in Sacramento
City museums are often overlooked by tourists but are often the best to get a real "feel" for a place, to understand the history & development of the city you are visiting.
The museum well documents the history of the city from its beginnings as a gold town and the lives of those who lived at that time.

Travis Air Force Base Heritage Center Fairfield 51.6 km away
#1 of 2 Museums in Fairfield
Although this can be a good thing, many of these museums are losing their mix of aircraft and displays and having to concentrate on just the history of that base.

Maidu Museum & Historic Site Roseville 27.9 km away
#1 of 5 Museums in Roseville
We have been to multiple Indian museums throughout the west so we had a point of reference.
It think that workshops on basket weaving and other skills that were part of Native American culture would be most informative and educational for young visitors to the museum.
Marin Museum of Bicycling and Mountain Bike Hall of Fame Fairfax
#1 of 1 Museums in Fairfax
One of the best museums I've ever visited, the background information I got was awesome, all details of the showcased bikes were great and you could see the love to details everywhere!
