History Happy Hour- June 26
Kick back with us at the Sacramento History Museum’s first ever History Happy Hour! From 6:00PM to 8:00PM, guests 21 and older will enjoy beer, wine and soft drinks. At 7:00PM, a pub style trivia game will reveal the cleverest “Sactophiles” among us. Winning teams will leave with prizes, and guests will be able to view the museum’s exhibits as well.
This event is free to our members, costs $10 for the general public, and includes two free drink tickets. Tickets are not available in advance; admission is taken at the door.

Thursday Night at the Museums - Beginning May 29
The Sacramento History Museum and the California State Railroad Museum are proud to offer extended hours on Thursday evenings as part of a special “Thursday Night at the Museums” program this summer!
Both museums will stay open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend this summer with two exceptions. On July 31, the Sacramento History Museum will not be open late for extended hours, and on August 14, the Railroad Museum will not be open for extended hours but will offer evening excursion train that evening only.
What's more, Sacramento History Museum members and California State Railroad Museum members will receive free admission at both museums during the Thursday night program.
Other Old Sacramento favorites have even gotten in on the fun! Danny's Mini Donuts is offering $1 scoops of ice cream and Fat City Bar & Cafe is offing 20% discounts (these offers are only valid with proof of Thursday night museum visits). And for those looking to set sail along the Sacramento River, Hornblower has added a special Thursday evening cruise departing at 6:00PM.
