Gra Neva A's

We had a wonderful tour to the California State Parks new Statewide Museum Collection Center ( and were totally amazed by the volume and variety of artifacts they have collected for over 100 years. The collections are archived in a huge building (260,000 square feet) that is temperature, humidity and light controlled. It is located on the west side of McClellan Park. There are four bays (160,000 sq. ft.) for the floor to ceiling shelving containing the archived artifact collections. There is also a Photographic Archive, an Archeological sorting and ID room in addition to many other speciality rooms. Our tour was thoughtful and very knowledgeable.
