Hidden beneath the city for nearly 150 years, Old Sacramento’s underground has long been the capital’s best-kept secret.

Tour guests explore excavated foundations and enclosed pathways while entertaining and knowledgeable tour guides recount the tales of the devastation, perseverance and determination that led to California’s only successful street-raising project.  New this year, underground tour guests have a special, hands-on opportunity to learn what it was like to raise and level a building by operating “mini-jacks” during the tours. Underground tour guests need to check in at the Sacramento History Museum before descending below several historic Old Sacramento buildings and be prepared to walk in areas with uneven surfaces and low ceilings. Advance tour tickets are recommended and can be purchased at historicoldsac.org.

In addition, the exhibit will demonstrate the prevalence of stream train-themed artwork and/or designs being used to enhance consumer appeal on products, as well as illustrating the far-reaching impact railroading has had on the mindset of Americans. The museum is located at 125 I St. For more information call (916) 323-9280 or visit csrmf.org.
