Native American artifacts from California tribes have been on display at the museum since the 1920s. The artifacts were a gift to California State Parks in 1979 by a private collector and benefactor. It is perhaps the finest collection of artifacts from Great Basin cultures in California. The museum building is being renovated and brought up to seismic code by State Parks using other funding sources. During this period, the artifacts are being stored, cleaned, repaired and cataloged for the first time in decades using some Prop 84 funding. This is standard maintenance that must be conducted on museum and archeological artifacts from time to time to preserve them for future generations of visitors. The artifacts will be returned and put on display once the museum renovation is complete.
