This California Indian Museum is small...but very educational and interesting. There are many books about The California Missions to look at and buy. The story of "The Last Wild Indian of California, Ishii" is there in book and photographic form, for example. This is worth...More

A somewhat melancholic little museum in a quaint park in midtown Sacramento, a place that is calm and soothing and makes you angry at the same time. Angry about the fate of native Americans and angry about the missionaries who imposed their beliefs with sheer...More

Small but powerful. Well thought out displays of California Native American lifestyles, tools and regalia. No photos allowed. Located adjacent to Sutter's Fort. On street (metered) parking. Handicap accessible. Small gift shop. Restrooms in a separate building. Well worth the visit.

We found this museum to be very interesting especially in terms of the Native Tribes that used to inhabit all of California. There is a wealth of information contained in here, and it's presented beautifully. We would certainly come back here to visit.
