SACRAMENTO — In addition to its fascinating Gold Rush past, the Sacramento area is rich with an amazing array of state-of-the-art museums and historic sites that offer visitors the chance to explore California’s fine art, history, science, and wildlife treasures all year long. In April many of the 28 members of Sacramento Association of Museums (SAM) are proud to showcase a variety of upcoming earth-friendly events and activities, including:

“Pick Me! Fruit Crate Art & the California Dream” at the Railroad Museum, debuts April 10: Back by popular demand, a second phase of the visually-powerful exhibit titled “Pick Me! Fruit Crate Art & the California Dream” is opening in April at the California State Railroad Museum. Visitors will delight in a whole new crop of whimsically designed fruit crate labels from the 1880s through the early 1950s that inspired many to “Go West” in search of the California Dream.
