“Former Jail house turn museum”

The Museum is located on the corners of 6th and H Streets in Crescent City, California. The Museum is housed in the former County Hall of Records. It was built in 1926 and a portion of the building was used for the County Jail until 1963 when the present County Sheriff’s station opened. The Historical Society took over the building and with some interior remodeling it became the Museum in 1965. There are still some original jail cells on the second floor, which also serve as individual exhibit rooms. The Main Museum has a wealth of interesting displays. One room is devoted to artifacts of the local Tolowa and Yurok Native Americans. It includes one of the finest Native American basket collections in Northern California. Musical instruments, old radio, phonographic and photographic equipment, excellent needlework, early logging and mining tools and equipment, and many fashions and furniture from yesteryear are just some of the objects and subjects represented and on display in the Main Museum.
