This is a good way to learn more about the tahoe region, It does not take long to visit, and you get a better understanding of the area.

“If you're interested in baskets ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

This is one of those scratch-your-head places ... what is it doing here?! If you're interested in Native American baskets of the west coast, this funny little place has the best collection I've ever seen. A docent at the little history museum in South Lake Tahoe recommended it and it was well, well worth the 45 minute drive. The little gift shop is filled with related items. Amazing find.

We really enjoyed this museum. Didn't expect to find it in this super big tourist area. The staff was pleasant and we did enjoy what we saw.

“Most beautiful place to hold a wedding ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

The views of the lake and the surrounding Sierras make for the most romantic of settings. Tahoe City is far more than just a place to eat and get gas on the way to South Shore or to ski. Stop and walk around. Look over Fanny Bridge. You will be caught up in the romance too.

“Historical Place on the banks of Truckee River!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

If you are interested in history, you must visit the place. The Gatekeeper’s Museum is big museums and holds various historical artifacts including Native American baskets, photographs, clothing, maps and newspapers. You can enjoy the truckee river from this place and also see the Dam on the river with Blue waters.
