Participating Museums

A full list of participating museums, free dates, opening hours and activities is available on the Heritage Trail Museums Tour blog.

The Heritage Trail kicks off June 1 in Roseville with three museum offerings: Maidu Museum and Historic Site, Roseville Telephone Museum and Roseville Historical Society Carnegie Museum. It ends Aug. 31 at the Forest Hill Divide Museum in Foresthill.

Fun, family-friendly activities are spread throughout the free weekends, including live music, historical reenactments and much more. Trail visitors are also encouraged to pick up a ‘Get Up and Go’ card at any participating museum. Those who fill the card with stamps from at least four participating museums will be eligible for a gift basket drawing.

Those who are unable to attend a Heritage Trail day can visit them during their regular hours of operation and still get their Get-Up-And-Go cards stamped. All museums have free admission on their Heritage Trail day.

Students entering kindergarten through 12th grade in the fall can enter for a chance to win a Samsung Galaxy tablet, a Kindle Fire or backpacks full of school supplies by completing a student scavenger hunt card, which is available at participating museums.
