Dunsmuir Museum

museumThe Dunsmuir Railroad Depot Historical Society has been working to re-establish the Dunsmuir Museum adjacent to the Railroad Display Room at the Amtrak Depot on Sacramento Avenue.

Four rooms have been prepared by the Depot Society members and the Dunsmuir High School Seniors.  The old Museum archives have been cataloged and data entered to enable us to achieve our Mission Statement.

The original Museum sign was turned over to the Depot Society and has been refurbished.
