THE "NEW" CARNEGIE MUSEUM IS NOW OPEN!
HOURS OF OPERATION ARE MONDAY - FRIDAY, NOON TO 4PM
The wait is over! Roseville now has a renovated history museum! 16 new displays, all dedicated specifically to the history of Roseville, are now available for viewing. We also have a new children's area - a place for the young ones to play, learn about history, and basically have their own space while the adults browse the rest of the museum.
Now through November 2 our SPECIAL DISPLAY featuring an 1858, Barstow and Breed Company cast iron casket, complete with a glass panel for viewing, will be showcased. This is a very rare casket and offers a chance to see and understand how our ancestors dealt with the passing of their loved ones.
Our new gift shop is a delight for vintage items, jewelry, and good old-fashioned fun things for all ages!
Special off-hour tours can be scheduled for a donation of $20 for groups of ten or less; for groups over ten people an additional $2 per person is requested.
Preserving & Promoting the History of Roseville
Scanning and indexing our archives for preservation and access.
Using high-resolution imagery and information to relate the stories of Roseville.
We've been busy fulfilling our mission by preserving Roseville's history. With volunteer support, Roseville's newspapers from the past are being indexed for easier access. You could be a part of it too. Help us open a window onto the past as one of our volunteers.
As we continue to carry out our mission by preserving stories, photos and documents from the community, our view on the past becomes clearer. Sometimes connections are made or a new perspective is gained when we discover an unknown piece of information. Each historical tidbit we capture sharpens our focus and the historic picture becomes easier to see.
Please join us in welcoming our new curator, Sharalee Falzerano. Sharalee comes to us from New York and has over 25 years experience in curating museums and managing archives. She brings to us a depth of knowledge and vision that is a first for our Carnegie museum. Without Sharalee our renovated displays and Leonard Davis Reading Room (our archives) could not have created with the level of professionalism you now see in the museum. Thank you Sharalee!
If you would like to be a part of history consider applying to join our museum family! We are looking for volunteers to work in the museum and docents to assist our visitors in learning our history. If you are interested please forward your information to firstname.lastname@example.org with the Subject Line of Volunteer Interest. We look forward to hearing from you!
