Old Sacramento Underground Tours (Spring)

at Sacramento History Museum

Come see and learn how Sacramento lifted itself up out of the flood waters during the 1860s and 1870s.

Tour guides explain how the streets and buildings were “jacked up” to avoid further flooding as visitors explore two spaces that were created by the city’s successful raising process. This historical tour includes hollow sidewalks, sloped alleyways, and the Underground spaces themselves. The colorful cast of guides ensures no two tours are ever the same.

The Old Sacramento Underground tour program is coordinated by the Historic Old Sacramento Foundation (HOSF) in partnership with the City of Sacramento, California State Parks, Old Sacramento Business Association (OSBA), and participating merchants and businesses.

Note: All underground tour guests need to check in at the Sacramento History Museum before descending below several historic Old Sacramento buildings and be prepared to walk in areas with uneven surfaces and low ceilings. Virtually all of the Adult Only Underground Tours are sold out for the remainder of the 2015 season but will resume in 2016.

Note: There is no photography in the Underground spaces.
