Folsom History Museum & Pioneer Village

Welcome to Folsom History. We are a family of three museums celebrating the uniquely rich heritage of Folsom by creating programming and partnerships that explore civic innovation, creative making, and the importance of cultural diversity in innovation. We offer engaging historical exhibits, events, research opportunities, and educational and interpretive tours. The Folsom History Museum provides an overview of Folsom’s history from its beginning as the home of the Nisenan to the 1960s through the history of innovation. It explores how Folsom as we know it today was formed by providing the history of its founding, the Gold Rush, railroad, its pioneers, agriculture and important businesses. Pioneer Village is an outdoor museum and makerspace. This interactive interpretive area includes gold panning and a working blacksmith forge. Here, you can explore a miner's cabin, a genuine Southern Pacific Railroad caboose and walk-through historic Ashland Station.
