Tattooed and Tenacious
Sacramento History Museum

Far from being a modern phenomenon or a fad, tattoos have a long, rich history. Discover California’s part of that history at the Sacramento History Museum’s latest exhibit! “Tattooed and Tenacious: Inked Women in California’s History” uses photographs, personal histories, and artifacts to highlight the history of tattoos and women in the state. From Indigenous women, to Victorian-era heiress Aimée Crocker, to modern women today, the exhibit shows off a largely unknown part of history.

Gold Fever! Game
Sacramento History Museum

Boom or Bust, launching from the newly relocated Sacramento Visitors Center, guests to the Old Sacramento Waterfront can experience what it was like to catch gold fever in the River City while getting actively involved in the intriguing Gold Fever! Game and tour. Participants take on personas of characters in history – or “real-life rascals” – who scratched and clawed their way to make this area the center of the Gold Rush. Never the same experience twice, Gold Fever! Game relives Sacramento’s early days when gold fever ruled amid horrible disasters that threatened fates and fortunes.
