City of Sacramento History Museum

About City of Sacramento History Museum

The Sacramento History Museum is a reproduction of the 1854 City Hall and Waterworks building, which sat on our current site. The original building was completed in the spring of 1854 and was the city’s first municipal structure. It housed the City Waterworks, City Offices – including the Mayor’s office and Fire Department – the City Jail, and Police Court.


Education Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 Sacramento, CA
“The internship was very hands on and allowed for close interactions with all the museum staff as well as guests of the museum. I was able to learn more about Sacramento History, and the importance of Sacramento to California history. Working with the education department also allowed me to work closely with the living history, which was amazing to see docents and interpretators up close with the guests on tours. There was a 3 week history summer camp that allowed me to work with the education department directly with teaching and passing knowledge down to kids ages 6 - 11. Getting the kids interesting in the history of Sacramento, the Gold Rush, and California history was a very rewarding challenge. ”
