The Siskiyou County Museum is a county facility and together with the assistance of the Siskiyou County Historical Society has generated a wonderful collection of artifacts, photographs, and ephemera. Our outstanding Siskiyou County Museum was built in 1950 by the county to collect, preserve, disseminate, and interpret the history of the area for future generations.
Included in the small admission price is our 2 1/2 acre Outdoor Museum which fosters an appreciation of Siskiyou County heritage through authentic and reconstructed buildings set in replicated environment. Please note the Outdoor Museum is closed during the winter months.
