We were lucky enough to visit on a day where a school group was engaged in living history lessons. It was fun to watch the students learn to lasso, dip candles, wash laundry and more. I don't know if it would have been nearly as interesting without them. The rooms are great to look at, but their experiences really made it come alive for us, too.

Great place to learn about early Sacramento and how it was settled. Downtown area is lovely with many trees.

If you want to show your children life in the past, take them to Sutter's Fort.
When the actors are there, you will see a slice of life and it will be very authentic. The children love the Blacksmith's area.

Very informative about the local area and how it grew up until the gold rush. It was actually the owner's fault, Mr Sutter that it all started as a matter of fact.
