The California Museum engages, educates and enlightens people about California’s rich history and its unique contributions to the world of ideas, innovation, the arts, and culture.

The California Museum is open Tuesday – Sunday

 Located in downtown Sacramento just a block from the State Capitol, the Museum offers an ever-changing array of interactive and innovative exhibits. Home of the California Hall of Fame, the Museum honored Julia Morgan in 2008 for her extraordinary body of work and for her inspirational role in breaking barriers for women in architecture.

A large panel in the Museum galleries memorializes her induction into this institution that recognizes Californians who have made an indelible mark on history. Morgan also is highlighted in the Museum’s ongoing California’s Remarkable Women exhibit.

Open Tues.-Sat. 10-5 and Sun. 12-5.
