In addition, the popular Old Sacramento Underground tour program will also resume on weekends beginning April 1 & 2 and continue through December 2017 (with schedules fluctuating and expanding with the seasons). Hidden beneath the city for more than 150 years, Old Sacramento’s underground has long been the capital’s best-kept secret. Underground tour visitors have the unique opportunity to uncover the facts behind the legends that lie below historic buildings and sidewalks. 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. Underground tour guests can also enjoy visual components that enhance the understanding of Sacramento’s unique history. In one underground area, an archeological dig has been recreated to show tour guests how artifacts were uncovered and the critical clues they held to piecing together our fascinating history. In a second underground area, tour guests can enjoy a hands-on experience to understand how the buildings were raised plus see an exciting visual element projected onto the wall of the hollow sidewalk that shows the changing water patterns and demonstrates the effectiveness of the lifting process.
Plus, as a special bonus for tour guests during April and May, a complimentary pass to visit the Sacramento History Museum will be provided to everyone who purchases a tour ticket (i.e. Old Sacramento Underground Tour, Underground After Hours, etc.); please see website for details.
