The Maidu Museum & Historic Site offers visitors a unique combination of a world class museum and 6,000 year old Native Californian Indian village site. Graced by oak trees and bordered on the south by a branch of Linda Creek/Strap Ravine, the nature area offers a loop trail that takes you past ancient petroglyphs and hundreds of bedrock mortars for grinding acorns; evidence of Nisenan / Southern Maidu occupation of the site for thousands of years.
Inside the museum you'll find exhibits portraying the Maidu way of life as well as an art gallery featuring the talents of contemporary Native Americans. The Museum Gift Shop offers a wide selection of books about Native Californians, handmade jewelry, minerals, arrowheads, other cultural artifacts and many nature-related items.
