Old Sacramento Underground Tours
Sacramento History Museum
Launching from the Sacramento History Museum, Old Sacramento Underground Tour guests enjoy a unique opportunity to explore what has been hidden beneath the city for more than 150 years, while uncovering the facts and legends that lie below historic buildings and sidewalks. Guests explore excavated foundations, enclosed pathways and interesting archaeology exhibits while hearing sounds of 1860 street life and tales of the devastation, perseverance, and determination that led to California’s only successful street-raising project. Knowledgeable tour guides provide entertaining experiences with various perspectives that may differ on each tour. Just in time for the 2022 season, new underground tour guides include the likes of Madame Fanny Lanos, Benjamin Franklin Hastings, Francis “Frankie” Bass, Dr. John F. Morse, and Lorinda Washburn, just to name a few.
Note: Tours are limited to 20 per group.
Tour tickets may be purchased at the Sacramento History Museum, Visitor’s Center (1000 2nd St), or online at sachistorymuseum.org
