Heritage Trail 2023











Welcome Trail Travelers!

We are glad you decided to join us on the 2023 Heritage Trail Museums Tour. This is the 14th year for the event and 26 museums from Roseville to Tahoe/Truckee are opening their doors free of charge for certain days throughout the summer. All 26 museums are committed to showcasing history in a fun and entertaining way. For many Trail Travelers, this event has become a family tradition. Geographic clusters of museums will have their Heritage Trail event on certain Saturdays (and one Sunday) throughout the summer.  This way you have the whole summer to visit participating museums.

 If you can’t make it on a museums’ Heritage Trail Day, you can visit them during their regular hours of operation and still get your Get-Up-And-Go cards stamped!  All museums have free admission on their Heritage Trail Day (see calendar below). If you visit them on any other day, you will have to pay admission if applicable.

Whether you are from Auburn, Reno, San Francisco, or Boston, please enjoy this opportunity to take a trip back in time and get a better understanding of Placer County’s rich and colorful history. Each museum on the tour is unique. Aside from immersing yourselves in history, you will enjoy the variety of settings at each museum. If you are a student entering K thru 12th grade in the fall of 2023, you can enter a chance to win a Samsung Galaxy tablet, a Kindle Fire or backpacks full of school supplies by completing a student scavenger hunt card. Scavenger hunt cards are available in participating museums.


Please read the calendar on the following pages.  Thanks again for joining us. We hope you have a great time!
