We went to the Silent City cemetery tour. What a fun, wonderful and personal way to share Eureka history. It was so great. Well organized. Very informative. And very reasonably priced way to spend the evening on a fall day in Eureka. I would definitely participate in other activities they offer.

As a business owner, I finally got the time to do some research on the history of my building and I found some great info at the Eureka Historical Museum. The on site curator helped me search for historical documents and even found some pictures of my place from 1940! It's a small museum, but well worth the visit to... More

When you walk into the museum, you immediately sense the pride that the locals have in their town. A town with quite a history. I learned that 13-star flags were produced for many years after we gained our indendence. I learned that people used to buy souvenirs that were fine art made in another country...and only in the past 50... More

I had been here about 20 years ago and found it interesting with more local folk information. They still had the feather crown but didn't find the mad stone. What they have now would be more interesting for local residents that want to see pictures of early residents in school pictures. It doesn't mean much to people from out of... More

You can tell a lot of time has gone into creating the museum. There are lots of pictures and lots of information. There are some artifacts. There is an art exhibit. I think I would have enjoyed this more if I were from the area. Our teenagers did not enjoy the visit at all.

The staff is very informative and friendly. The downstairs is all about the town and its people. Very well done. The upstairs is cool too but the stairs are steep. The local artists exhibit was well done.
