Following another successful Sacramento Museum Day – which was attended by nearly 50,000 community members -- the Sacramento Association of Museums (SAM) has announced March 2016 as Museum Membership Month!

The benefits of museum membership often extend well beyond a financial savings and include exclusive experiences only available to members. Plus, there’s something for everyone as the thriving Sacramento museum community offers memberships at virtually every museum and/or destination -- from fine art and culture to native, exotic and endangered wildlife. To highlight Museum Membership Month in March, many of the nearly 30 museums are offering special incentives and discounts for enthusiasts who choose to become members of their favorite museums and destinations. A few limited-time offers include the following:

To start the season, three tours are available on Saturdays and Sundays at 10:45 a.m., 12:15 p.m. and 1:45 p.m. Visitors are encouraged to check the website regularly as tour offerings will expand and change with the seasons.

Boaters and Floaters

Being prone to flooding, the city of Sacramento is no stranger to the awesome destructive power of water. Take a few epic deluges, add in some drunks falling into the river, mix in a few horrific steamship explosions, and bam, you're soaking in a tragic but entertaining tour.

Join us on Saturday, March 5th at 10:00 a.m. for this engaging tour. Free.
