Activity Overview

Go on a historical journey that will offer the entire family information about how the Nisenan Maidu Indian used to live with a visit to the Maidu Museum and Historic Site. The museum is located on the Sacramento foothill, a place that was once home to the Nisenan Maidu Indians. Explore the loop trail that will take you past dozens of petroglyphs and hundreds of bedrock mortars.
