Dinner and a Show

Murder at Cafe Noir is a comic tribute to the Bogart Movies of the 1940s. This ’40s detective story come to life features Rick Archer, P.I., out to find a curvaceous runaway on the forgotten island of Mustique, a place stuck in a black-and-white era. The owner of the Cafe Noir has washed ashore, murdered, and Rick’s quarry was the last person seen with him. Rick employs his hard-boiled talents to find the killer.

Trees & Traditions

large decorated Christmas tree

Trees & Traditions, our Holiday Gala, is held the first Saturday of December. The Museum is decorated with a large Christmas tree and fresh greenery. Heavy hors d'oeuvres, champagne, live music, a raffle and a silent auction round out the evening. This party is big, we use the Museum and Ettl Hall.

Thank you to our 2016 Corporate Sponsors:

Pig Roast

Our Pig Roast is all about the pig! We start roasting at 7am behind Ettl Hall. Timed perfectly so when the pig is done, it is carved and served - you won't get fresher pork anywhere in Sutter County! We keep the rest of the menu simple, just a few sides and desserts. Your ticket also includes 2 drinks. Live music makes it a party, all we need is you and your friends to come join us!

The Pig Roast will take place on August 19th this year.

Tickets prices are TBD.


Adult Programs

We offer a wide variety of presentations, lectures, book signings, and exhibit receptions throughout the year. If you have suggestions for future programs, please let us know!

Children's Programs

Our children's programs are educational in nature, with a lot of fun thrown in! They are usually structured to include some instructional time, a craft or activity related to the topic, and home-made cookies to finish it off. We do annual programs in the spring, summer, and in December. We hope to increase our children's offerings in the near future, so keep an eye on this space!


Museum staff is available for guided tours and presentations. Tours can be tailored to fit your group's interests, but we require at least one month notice for this service.

If you are a teacher and would like to bring your class to the Museum, please contact us at least 2 weeks in advance. We may not be able to accommodate requests made on shorter notice. School tours are available Tuesday-Friday, 9am-4pm.
