This building was absolutely beautiful and filled with amazing items to browse and learn more about Humboldt County, the rich Native American history of the area, and was staffed by friendly and helpful employees. The location was right in the middle of downtown which made it great for walkability and to be near many of the local attractions and restaurants.

My wife and I were both impressed with the beautiful old building. My wife was in a wheelchair and there was plenty of room for her to move about the museum. There is a handicap entrance into the museum. We both enjoyed the museum. The basket collection was very interesting as well as a quilt that ladies in Eureka sent to President Grant.

I love local history. I like this little museum very much and came in July while a little cal quilt guild had a quilt show at Redwood Acres fair grounds. The museum took that opportunity to exhibit local antique quilts including one,ade locally and presented to presented to President Ulysses S. Grant and returned to Eureka by his heirs. There is also a room dedicated to local Indian tribes who had a horrific history here. I believe visits to small museums in rural areas tell us more about real American life and history than many large, more renowned museums.

If you live in Humboldt or just visiting you should stop by this museum. Great history lesson and plenty to see. Don’t forget to ask some questions. Enjoy.

I honestly felt like history stopped here when we walked in. Lots of great things to see and the paintings on the wall were very interesting. My kids didn't really enjoy it but I'm still giving them 5 stars.

Response from Cecile_Clarke, Owner at Clarke Historical Museum
Responded 28 Dec 2018
Thank you for visiting and the 5-star review! I'm wondering how old your kids are and if there is anything in particular that they would have enjoyed, like a larger kids activity area? We try to cater to all age levels, which can be difficult. Take care and happy holidays.
