Old Sacramento Underground Tours - Season Ends 12/14!

Nov 18, 2014 01:36PM ● Published by Brenna McGowan

It’s the best time of year to experience what Old Sacramento Underground Tours have to offer! 

Hidden beneath the city for nearly 150 years, Old Sacramento’s underground has long been the capital’s best-kept secret.  Underground tour visitors have the unique opportunity to uncover the facts behind the legends that lie below historic buildings and sidewalks.

Tour guests explore excavated foundations and enclosed pathways while entertaining and knowledgeable tour guides recount the tales of the devastation, perseverance and determination that led to California’s only successful street-raising project. 

New this year, underground tour guests have a special, hands-on opportunity to learn what it was like to raise and level a building by operating “mini-jacks” during the tours.  Underground tour guests need to check in at the Sacramento History Museum before descending below several historic Old Sacramento buildings and be prepared to walk in areas with uneven surfaces and low ceilings. 

Advance tour tickets are recommended and can be purchased at
