School Tours are Back in Session!

Updated August 26, 2021

The Maidu Museum is welcoming back elementary classes for the 2021/2022 school year. Take a walk along the historic site trail and visit the museum’s exhibit hall to learn about the rich and diverse culture of the local Nisenan and Maidu tribes. Museum tours include playing traditional California Indian games and listening to Nisenan stories. While on the trail get an up-close look at rock-carvings and learn how to make acorn flour. For more information and to schedule a tour, visit the School Tours page.

Can’t make it to the museum? Schedule a virtual fieldtrip or an in-classroom Outreach Program. The Virtual Field Trip guides students through the site’s grinding holes, rock art, and native plants and animals to explore the many ways the local Nisenan tribes created a thriving community in Roseville.


Bring the museum to your classroom (literally) with an in-classroom Outreach Program. A museum staff member will lead students in learning about three different California Indian tribes and how environment and culture are intertwined.  For more information about the Virtual Field Trips and Outreach Programs and to schedule a program, check out the Distance Learning page.
