The Sacramento History Museum is proud to announce that a Spanish-speaking Old Sacramento Underground Tour is available at 3 p.m. on the Second Sunday of each month beginning on August 9, 2020.

The special Spanish-speaking tour will be led by knowledgeable and entertaining guide Alejandra Meléndez-Silva who portrays Doña Benicia (Francisca Benicia Carillo de Vallejo), the wife of Gen. Mariano Vallejo. As part of the tour that travels back in time, Doña Benicia relates intriguing facts about her life and marvels at what the Capital City has become at that point in history. While describing Sacramento’s fight to save itself from frequent flooding, Doña Benicia tells guests about life in Mexican California, before the Gold Rush. She describes her own adventures, including riding more than four months and 600 miles on a mule – while pregnant – to reach her husband. As background, the cities of Vallejo and Benicia – named for the couple – were also state capitals before Sacramento became the permanent capital in 1854.

All tour tickets include complimentary admission to the Sacramento History Museum.

What’s New(s)?

Celebrate Ten Years of Jacked Up Fun!

Join us for the next year, as we celebrate ten years of Underground Fun! Underground Tour guides and tour volunteers from the past ten years gathered on July 13, to celebrate 10 tour seasons. The Museum has paid off its loan from the city to build the Underground Tour, and now plans on new tours to celebrate Sacramento’s eye-popping history.

The Mayor (C.H. Swift, from 1860s Sacramento City) officially decreed hope that the city enjoys 150 more years of prosperity. Thousands of visitors have wandered through the city’s underground as guides, portraying figures from Sacramento’s Gold Rush past, tell the amazing story of the city’s survival against frightful odds.

Mayor Swift was there from the start, on the tour’s first official day, July 10, 2010. Except back then he was Ted, one of the original volunteers helping convey guests safely on the tour route.

Ted became a Tour Guide, and now spends his weekend mornings as the Mayor of Old Sacramento, the first friendly face you see in town, showing you around and letting you know about tour times.

Original guides Jane and Ted C. joined original guide Sarah to reminisce in the Underground spaces; some of the guides and volunteers, including original volunteer Nicholas, had not experienced some of the tour’s light and sound effects.

Miss Odessa, aka Jane, has led tours from the beginning and regales guests still today. She brought her family to reunite with guides.

Staci, the tour program’s original Tour Manager, reunited with guides and volunteers. Staci now works for the Center for Sacramento History, the city’s archives, as curatorial assistant.

 

Greg, who can claim to have led Museum tours even before the Underground Tours began, joined with one of the newest guides, Heather, and her mom, beneath the B.F. Hastings building.

Mayor Swift proclaimed the day official, while guides and volunteers sported cockades made especially for the occasion by Tour Coordinator Nicolette, along with the Education Department staff Susan and Zoey. Longtime Old Sacramento Living History volunteer Robin showed them how to make cockades. Nicolette threw the party for guides and volunteers, complete with cake and a sparkling cider toast.

Happy birthday, Sacramento History Museum and Tours! I visited in 1992 and saw an exhibit called “Victory on the Homefront: Sacramentans and WWII.” I liked it so much, I decided to volunteer at the museum! For the next four years (I think) I spent four hours every Sunday afternoon standing at the ticket counter or at the gift shop register. At that time, the ticket counter was on the left-hand side as you entered, and the gift shop was in the room that I think is now used for Undergound Tour equipment. I loved meeting visitors from other states and countries. The thing I remember most clearly, though, is this: I’d tell visitors, “The exhibits start at the top of the escalator, and you’ll work your way around and down, coming out in the back where the farm equipment is.” They’d nod and look at the escalator, then they’d walk right to the farm equipment and go up the stairs! That meant they’d have to turn around at the escalator and go all the way through the displays again and come down the stairs. A few of them weren’t happy with that when they left. I was actually kind of glad to see the escalator go!

I’ve been a member for a number of years and I can’t wait until I can visit again.

-Maddie P.

 

Last year I toured with some immediate family members the museum and underground tours and they were excellent tours and loved how the tour guides took on the role of an actual historical figure. It made them seem more real and brought us closer to what it was like living back then. 

What happened though was we shared our great time with other family members who have lived in Chico 30 years and had never been there and so they went on it and really liked it. Then they spread the word how great it was so other family members went on it….but still more family members to go. So when the virus restrictions lift I know they will make plans to visit.

It’s a wonderful enjoyable outing and I am very appreciative for all the volunteers who put so much time and effort into keeping our history alive.

-Janet D.

 

Greetings from the UK. I have made regular vacations to your lovely and diverse country over the years. I am a history buff and american history has fascinated me from the revolutionary war sites in Williamsburg and New England, Civil War sites from Gettysburg to Fredericksburg to Spanish American history at the Alamo and your prehistory at the Cahokia mounds. I visited Sacramento as part of a California vacation in 2016 and I recall a great few days in the Old Town, at Sutters Fort and the fabulous Railway Museum, undoubtedly however a highlight was the Museum’s Underground Tour which brought early Sacramento history and times to life with an informative and friendly guide I would recommend the attraction to any visitor. I am 60 on Tuesday one day after your anniversary and so I take the opportunity to send my best wishes and I look forward to returning in happier times (hopefully together with a ball game as I enjoyed in 2016….go Rivercats!).

– John D.

 

Congrats on 35 years! I worked there briefly in 1997 when it was the Discovery Museum and Evangeline Higginbotham was director. My desk was on the second floor near the escalator; two volunteers, elderly sisters named Twila and something similar like Eartha perhaps, came in every day to manage the memberships. They were very short in stature, which was lucky because their desks were directly under the escalator – nobody else could fit under there! Although I wasn’t there long, I have many good memories of the place and the staff – Becky, Lisa, Karen, Carol, David… Forrest and Pamela from the Science Center side… And all the great volunteers, including the guys who demonstrated in the print shop. My favorite exhibit was Dunlap’s Diner. It’s great to see how much the museum has grown since then. Keep up the good work!

-Amanda M.

 

In 2002, our daughter was almost two years old and my mother-in-law was visiting when we decided to visit Old Sacramento. My fondest memories from that day was the time we spent in the Sac History Museum. The interactive displays were terrific especially for a family with a young child. I can still remember the pink dress that my daughter was wearing as she filled a basket with fake fruit in the agriculture area; she put on an apron in the wood cabin replica, and I read her a story in a little cubby area filled with comfy pillows and lots of picture books relevant to the Sacramento area. My mother in law was delighted to watch her granddaughter interact with all the exhibits, laugh and show grandma all the things she was making. In 2002 we had only been in Sacramento for 3 years so a lot of the City history was new to me. Thank you Sacramento History Museum. Great memories.

-Ileana M.
