The building itself is a replica of Sacramento's 1854 City Hall and Waterworks building. Exhibit themes include the Gold Rush and mining, Nisenan & Maidu Indian Nations, fur trapping, agriculture, and cultural heritage.


The museum loves to incorporate living history aspects into their activities with docents and volunteers acting out historical eras in the museum provides an1880s gold rush ambiance.
