DescriptionThe Gatekeeper's Museum features exhibits about Lake Tahoe's natural and cultural history. The museum itself was once the home of the Gatekeeper of the outlet gates, where the Truckee River begins. Before that, this was a Washoe summer encampment, rich with history. Our exhibits cover Tahoe settlers, steamboats on the lake, 1960 Squaw Valley Olympics, Gilded Age resorts and more. Upstairs is "Ursus Among Us: The American Black Bear in the Tahoe Basin" -- the lake's only source for detailed information about our most famous non-human resident! This exhibit will be up until October 2014.
Our sister museum, in the adjacent building, is the Steinbach Indian Basket Museum, displaying more than 900 Native baskets from more than 85 tribes west of the Mississippi.
For children, we have scavenger hunts: all solutions can be found in the museum--answer the questions correctly and win a prize!
Our museums offer bears, baskets and a whole lot more!
