Description

 

The Sacramento History Museum is proud to offer a series of special “adults only” Underground Tours this summer. Entertaining and knowledgeable guides will lead tour guests on one-and-a-half-hour evening walking tours that explore some of the dark secrets and racy tales lurking in Old Sacramento’s underground history.

Hidden beneath the city for nearly 150 years, Old Sacramento’s historic underground always offers a unique tour experience that unearths the legends that lie below historic buildings and sidewalks. Tour guests explore excavated foundations and enclosed pathways while tour guides recount the tales of the devastation, perseverance, and determination that led to California’s only successful street-raising project.

Adult-only guests should check in at the Sacramento History Museum before descending below several historic Old Sacramento buildings. Participants should be prepared to walk in areas with uneven surfaces and low ceilings and get ready to learn and have fun all along the way.

The evening tours will end at River City Saloon where guests will receive a free Sarsaparilla and adult beverage specials. Due to the expected popularity of these evening walking tours, advance tickets are recommended and are available now.
