Maidu Museum & Park

Maidu-Museum-SignWe were looking for things to do with toddlers in Sacramento when we came across several blogs that talked about he fun their kids (both toddlers and older kids) at the Maidu Museum. That lead me to do a little digging and to find out that there is also an awesome themed park called …  you guessed it …. Maidu Park!

Museum Highlights

Storytelling under the stars – Sit under the stars at our outdoor amphitheater to enjoy native stories around the campfire. We’ll provide roasting sticks and marshmallows for a sweet program’s end to this fun family event. Museum doors open at 7pm. Program starts at 7:30pm. Fee: $5/person, $16/family of four, $5 each additional person. Under 2 are free.

Nisenan Maidu village – “Visitors can see the village site as well as petroglyphs and other cultural features along the easy half-mile trail outside the museum.”

Park Highlights

Play structures designed like buildings in a old west European American town.

Play structures designed like trains with a little train station.

A little fort-themed maze that’s great for toddlers.

I’d also like to check out the parks at Hillsborough Park (pirate ship theme) and Royer Park (castle theme). You can find more parks listed with photos at Sierra Moms.
