Gatekeeper's Museum reviews
Good place to visit while in Tahoe City. Rich local history, Olympic skies, dresses upstairs. First floor American Indian artifacts.

What a beautiful venue- attended a family wedding there. Spectacular views of lake. Clean bathrooms! Well worth a visit.

Very cute little museum and the curator was helpful and friendly.
Museum staff (blonde woman) was so knowledgeable about indigenous washoe tribe. Had a terrific perspective on settlers that added so much value to the tour. Her details on each indigenous artifact was incredible. The basket collection alone is a reason to make the trip from any part of the Lake, or northern CA, for that matter. Well preserved tools, baskets, hats, necklaces from tribes throughout the west coast: cosalish to ohlone to mewok and washoe or course. I could spend hours at the American indian artifacts alone. $5 per person is totally worth it. Ended up staying for about 60 min.
