Black History Month Self-Guided Tour

February 1 – 29, 2024

As featured on GoodDay Sacramento

Throughout February, the California Museum presents a self-guided Black History Month Tour—refreshed with new tour stops—highlighting African American contributions to California’s rich history. Focusing on themes of resilience, activism, democracy and community, this exploration of our signature and temporary exhibits highlights notable Black individuals, movements and organizations. Discover trailblazing individuals such as Bridget “Biddy” Mason, Venus and Serena Williams, and more!

This tour is designed for visitors of all ages to explore the Museum at their own pace using this digital tour map. Map markers highlight focal points, organized by exhibit. Read, watch and listen symbols show patrons where they can find specific stories of extraordinary Black Americans.

To participate, use the digital tour map or print it out before your visit. You may buy tickets in advance or upon your arrival anytime during Museum hours. Last admission is 4 pm. 

We estimate this tour will take approximately one hour. Feel free to move through areas of interest at your own pace. There is a suggested path but no required order.
