Maidu Museum & Historic Site wins Excellence Award

Last Updated: 9/26/2016

The Maidu Museum & Historic Site in Roseville was one of six museums in the State to receive the 5th Annual Superintendent's Awards for Excellence in Museum Education by the California Associations of Museums and the Office of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction.

The Maidu Museum & Historic Site offers a unique cultural haven for families and individuals who want to experience the life ways and culture of the Nisenan Maidu who called this location home for thousands of years.

The Maidu Museum is a learning center where Maidu and other California Indians and communities can share family traditions and tribal culture with museum visitors, both young and old, and with other native people, as well as artistic, literary, land management and other contemporary achievements and the accurate and authentic portrayal of their past.

The outside trail wanders through the Historic Site and offers visitors a chance to see the lasting cultural landmarks via hundreds of bedrock mortar holes and deeply carved petroglyphs.

The Maidu Museum & Historic Site is located at 1970 Johnson Ranch Drive.  Learn more about the museum and historic site.
