Explore - State Indian Museum

The State Indian Museum, opened in 1940, depicts three major themes of California Indian life: Nature, Spirit, and Family. Native peoples lived prosperously for thousands of years in what is now California. Join a Park Interpreter to learn "All About Acorns: A California Staple".

This program will help students compare what foods they can’t live without with nutritious acorns that are so important to Native Californians. This program is geared towards 3rd and 4th grades but all participants are welcome.

This program is fully booked for the 2020-2021 school year but you can still connect with us!
