Sacramento History Museum is a museum devoted to Sacramento, California and California Gold Rush history. Exhibit themes include the Gold Rush and mining, Nisenan & Maidu Indian Nations, fur trapping, agriculture, and cultural heritage.
The building itself is a replica of Sacramento's 1854 City Hall and Waterworks building, showcased in natural brick with two stories of 14 foot double doors across the front.

The Historic Old Sacramento Foundation assumed administration of the Sacramento History Museum and continues to educate visitors about Sacramento and the role the city has played in the state from the time of the Gold Rush.

The museum originally opened in 1985 as the Sacramento History Center, to exhibit artifacts and records from the Sacramento Archives and Museum Collection Center. In July 2008, under directive from the City of Sacramento, the alliance between the History Center and the Science Center was dissolved. The Discovery Museum Science and Space Center continues to operate independently of the Sacramento History Museum.
