The collection of the Sutter County Museum contains over 20,000 artifacts and over 8,000 photographs, all of which help us tell the story of the Yuba-Sutter community. Artifacts range from Native American material to clothing and household goods, from County records to agricultural equipment, from gold mining tools to postcards and souvenirs.


Due to current staffing levels, we are not able to offer research services at this time. You are welcome to use the many free, online resources available on the Resources page of the Museum website.
