The Heritage Trail is a summer-long road trip through history where 22 museums throughout Placer County open their doors admission free for one special day. To make it easier to see all the history our county has to offer, only small geographic clusters of museums will have their "Heritage Trail Day" on a given Saturday throughout the summer (see schedule in post below). The event kicks off in Auburn with the Bernhard Museum, Benton-Welty Schoolroom and the Gold Rush Museum on June 16th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Most museums will have special activities for the whole family to enjoy. Keep checking this blog for our 2018 Trail Guide which should be posted in the next couple weeks.
Pick up a Get-Up-And-Go card at any participating museum and get it stamped at each museum you visit. Once you have eight stamps, you can turn it in for a drawing for one of three Gift Baskets!
This year we'll once again have a student Scavenger Hunt! You can pick up the Scavenger Hunts at any participating museum or download from the Placer County Museums homepage. Each Scavenger Hunt will have ten questions, but students only need to answer seven. Once they have seven answered, they can turn it it for a drawing to win a Samsung Galaxy tablet, a Kindle Fire or one of three backpacks filled with school supplies.
