Outdoor Museum


There is a 2 1/2 acre Outdoor Museum located next to the county museum which fosters an appreciation of Siskiyou County heritage through authentic and reconstructed buildings set in a replicated environment.  

The County of Siskiyou has asked us to inform our readers that at this time the Outdoor Museum is open for the winter when the weather is acceptable.  Please contact the museum directly for further information.
Currently admission is free with a paid admission to the county museum.
