Truckee Museums

The Truckee Museums are great, considering that Truckee is a small town. According to, a "Museum" is a building, place, or institution devoted to the acquisition, conservation, study, exhibition, and educational interpretation of objects having scientific, historical, or artistic value.

When I think about a museum, I think about an educational opportunity. I can learn something about the museum that I am visiting. As such, it is common for kids in school to take field trips to visit the different museums.

When you come to Truckee, be sure to visit the interesting and informative assortment of museums in the Truckee area, especially if you have children.

Many of the museums are run by Non-Profit Organizations. Truckee Travel Guide will be taking a look at all of the local Museums in Truckee, and the Lake Tahoe Museums, in particular, the nearby ones on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. (additional information on each will be coming shortly)
