Housed in the his­toric Andrew Carnegie Library locat­ed in the heart of vibrant Down­town Chico, and imme­di­ate­ly adja­cent to the Cal­i­for­nia State Uni­ver­si­ty cam­pus, the Chico His­to­ry Muse­um has pro­vid­ed the greater Chico com­mu­ni­ty with mem­o­rable exhibits since 1986. Since its open­ing, the muse­um has served as a class­room for thou­sands of area chil­dren as well as a reflec­tive resource for adults seek­ing knowl­edge of all things Chico.

The museum’s Carnegie and Patrick Gal­leries have host­ed exten­sive exhibits cel­e­brat­ing the dis­tinct her­itage of Chico and its sphere of influ­ence. Exhibits change through­out the year and offer a wide vari­ety of top­ics. Per­ma­nent dis­plays, include the Chi­nese Tem­ple, a topo­graph­ic map of North­ern Cal­i­for­nia, and the Native Amer­i­can Exhibit.
