March is Museum Membership Month


Did you know that there are more than 30 museums in Sacramento! Many organizations, including the Sacramento Zoo, are members of the Sacramento Association of Museums (SAM). Area museums include everything from fine art and culture to native, exotic and endangered wildlife.
