This place is dedicated to helping to preserve all the past history of the gold rush, rail road miners and events that have happen in the Tahoe area.
Every visitor to South Lake Tahoe has to visit here at least once. Filled with local history. A great learning experience for kids, but its mostly for adults.
We called as was suggested by others and found out the days the museum was open. One of the days was our check out day and since we were just driving to Sparks for our next night's stay we had several hours open. Coming from the north, we had a hard time finding the place even though we had the... 更多
We returned to the free Lake Tahoe Historical Society Museum. This time one of the members of the staff was so nice and assisted us in seeing the good film they have there on Lake Tahoe history. It is called Lake of the Sky - The Story of Tahoe. We looked at the exhibits as well.
put together nicely, interesting, they have a good selection of books on the history of Tahoe.

If you love Tahoe history, it's a must... 更多

The docent pointed out their DVD showing- ended up watching the entire, fascinating 2-part history series about Lake Of the Sky from 1844 to 1960, narrated by Leonard Nimoy. There is a "one-armed bandit" on display-you can... 更多
We went to the Lake Tahoe Historical Society Museum; it is a free museum. There is several things to see outside the museum such as wagons, a historic cabin, and so forth. Inside the museum, we saw Native American artifacts, historical information, information about the historical steamers on Lake Tahoe, and more. There is a small gift shop as well.... 更多
