Ghost Tours
The Sacramento History Museum & Alliance


With a theme of Murders, Mayhem and Tragedies this year, the eerie and ever-popular one-hour Ghost Tours provide Old Sacramento Waterfront guests with the opportunity to relive 19th century lore as guides (and ghosts) relate tantalizing narratives about the deaths of colorful citizens from Sacramento’s history. This year, the tours will take place at the riverfront, inside and relatively close to the Sacramento History Museum as daring and inquisitive guests revisit stories of pestilence, mayhem, quacks and fraud through the darker side of Sacramento’s fascinating history. Along the way, tour guests may encounter wayward miners, murder victims and other Gold Rush characters while listening to tantalizing tales of Sacramento’s colorful and lively past.

Tickets go on sale September 1st for $18 a person. This tour is not recommended for children ages 8 and under. Tours depart from the Sacramento History Museum every half-hour.  

Advance reservations are recommended as tickets for the Old Sacramento Living History’s Ghost Tours are expected to sell out quickly. Proceeds from the Ghost Tours benefit the Sacramento History Alliance programs and the Sacramento History Museum.
