Looking for that perfect gift for a history buff? Drop by our  Museum and Museum Store. After a captivating walk through Butte County history at the Museum, take a few moments to fill your gift list with some of wonderful items in our newly reorganized and restocked Museum Store. Our volunteers have found many local products that will delight your family and friends. Also, be sure to look at the selection of excellent books about Butte County's fascinating history.  
Among the many local products made in Butte County, there are new additions from Painted Sky, a company based in Gridley that makes soaps, lotions and heel & elbow cream all from goat's milk. Mooney Farms, based at the Chico Airport, has wonderful culinary products that feature sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke pasta sauce and pesto. This Butte County company also has wonderful olive oil and beautiful gift baskets! These are just the tip of the iceberg of local products, books on local history, archival storage boxes and folders now available.

So think about us when you are ready for an interesting day at the museum or when you have a little shopping to do. We're looking forward to your visit.
