Sacramento museums offer activities and fun

In addition to its fascinating Gold Rush past, the Sacramento area is rich with an amazing array of state-of-the-art museums and historic sites that offer visitors the chance to explore California’s fine art, history, science and wildlife treasures all year long. In March, many of the 30 members of Sacramento Association of Museums (SAM) are kicking off springtime with fun activities filled with music, parties and even a promenade.

 

Events

Pop-Up Music Month at the Sacramento Children’s Museum — March 1-31: Join the Sacramento Children’s Museum all month to explore musical instruments and special activities such as fun Music and Movement dancing on Fridays, interactive Sing-A-Long Saturdays and more. Museum visitors will also have the hands-on opportunity to craft a musical instrument in the art studio all month long. For more information visit sackids.org or call 916-638-7225.

Wine Bottling Party Benefiting the Folsom Historical Society — March 8: The second Wine Bottling Party and fundraising event coordinated by the Folsom Historical Society is at Vintner’s Cellar in the Nimbus Winery building. The evening includes wine tasting, delicious appetizers, an entry into a raffle of wine-related prizes and the chance to bottle your own wine to take home. For more information visit folsomhistorymuseum.org or call 916-985-2707.

St. Louis Symphony Classical Concert at the Crocker Art Museum — March 17: Enjoy an afternoon performance by members of the nation’s second oldest symphony orchestra that combines masterful musicianship with a knack for making modern repertoire accessible. This concert features an ensemble of symphony musicians and is part of the Crocker’s monthly Classical Concert Series. Before the concert, a Prelude Tour of the museum will place the music in the context of the art on view. For more information visit crockerartmuseum.org or call 916-808-1182.

Easter Bonnet Promenade Starting at the Sacramento History Museum — March 30: Dress up in your favorite Easter finery — or other historic apparel — to celebrate in high style during the 18th annual “Living History” Easter Bonnet Promenade. Enjoy a leisurely one-hour stroll through the historic boardwalks and cobblestone streets of Old Sacramento that starts at 11 a.m. For more information visit historicoldsac.org or call 916-808-7059.
