The Maidu Museum & Historic Site offer a safe, fenced natural haven for families and individuals who want a brief respite from the hustle and bustle of city life. Graced by oak trees and bordered on the south by a branch of Linda Creek/Strap Ravine, the nature area offers a loop trail that takes you past ancient petroglyphs and hundreds of bedrock mortars for grinding acorns,evidence of Nisenan / southern Maidu occupation of the site for thousands of years. Inside the museum you'll find exhibits portraying the Maidu way of life.
Great museum to bring the whole family, a must see museum in Roseville, CA. Indoor museum provides information on Maidu Culture, Indigenous Art Gallery, and exhibits, as well as outdoor trail with petrogyphs, grinding rocks, native plant and animals. Very nice Gift Shop that has beautiful hand made jewelry by Native American artists, arrowheads, rocks, t-shirts, postcards, etc.
