Del Norte County Historical Museum


Our mission is to discover, collect, preserve and present the documents, structures, artifacts and ideas pertaining to Del Norte County, and to provide suitable museums or homes for such items in order to maintain them as public educational resources. The Del Norte County Historical Society is staffed by volunteers and supported by the general membership through annual dues, contributions and special events.

The general public supports the Society through their donations, admissions paid, research and reproduction fees paid and purchases made from our gift stores in both the Main Museum and at Battery Point Lighthouse. The Society also is supported by bequests and family donations made in honor of loved ones recognized in our 'Book of Memories'.

Members receive a quarterly publication of the Society called "Reflections." Members also receive discounts in our gifts shop, free admission to both the Museum and Battery Point Lighthouse and special invitations to Society events and educational programs.

See it every fourth of July parade goes right in front of it. They sell pie and ice cream during the parade. It's very informative. You can learn all about Crescent City and when the tsunami was there, it shows you the damage that was done to Crescent City and a lot of information on it. It's fascinating!

Karen was so congenial and helpful. Besides an extensive and well laid out museum, the historical documents were organized and ready at hand. I was looking for specific information and Karen jumped in and helped me get started. I went back a 2nd day and may go back a 3rd since there is so much information available.
