Old Sacramento Underground Tours

Community Event

Now in its 9th season, Old Sacramento Underground Tours give guests the unique opportunity to explore what’s been hidden beneath the city for more than 150 years, while uncovering the facts and legends that lie below historic buildings and sidewalks. Tour guests explore excavated foundations, enclosed pathways and interesting archaeology exhibits while hearing sounds of 1860 street life. Entertaining and knowledgeable tour guides lead the way while recounting tales of the devastation, perseverance, and determination that led to California’s only successful street-raising project. Tours of the underground last approximately one hour and cost $15 for adults, $10 for youths (ages 6-17) and are free for children five and under (however these tours are not recommended for this age group).
