August 2 & 3, 10am-4pm. The Maidu Museum & Historic Site will be open extended hours this weekend and will offer free admission and free guided tours at 10am and 1pm. Bring the whole family and enjoy our contemporary art galleries and interactive exhibits inside the museum. Walk outside along the 5/8 mile trail through the ancient Nisenan Maidu site to see petroglyphs, bedrock mortar holes and native plants and animals. Children can grind acorns, make a beaded bracelet and try the scavenger hunt all for free.
We are one of 20 different Placer County museums from Roseville to Tahoe who are opening their doors free of charge.
