Chico-Museum

Voted Editor’s Pick in 2013 as the Best View of Old Chico by the Chico News and Review, the Chico Museum’s current exhibit, “Chico in Black & White: Historical Photos from the John Nopel Collection,” offers outstanding photographic accounts of historic Chico.

Housed in the former 1904 Carnegie Library, the Chico Museum is located at the corner of 2nd and Salem Streets in downtown Chico.

The museum offers a permanent timeline depicting the history of Chico from 1830-2000. Changing exhibits that appeal to all ages, showcase regional cultural and natural history. These exhibits are always interesting, informative and interactive. Call for a calendar and newsletter.
