California Historical Society review Rate it

The state's official historical group has focused its efforts on assembling this impressive collection of Californiana. The vaults hold half a million photographs and thousands of books, magazines and paintings, as well as an extensive Gold Rush collection; selections are presented as changing displays on the state's history. The gift shop has an excellent little bookshop and a selection of souvenirs, including one of the best: the California Republic T-shirt.
