Tulare County Museum will explore Yokuts culture, pioneer history

Tucked in the southern quadrant of Mooney Grove Park in Visalia, the Tulare County Museum is one of the area’s undiscovered gems, with a pioneer village and cultural artifacts that give visitors a peek into the past.

In a bid to share its treasures with the public, museum staff are playing host to the fifth annual Museum Jamboree from 10 am to 3 pm Saturday, April 2.

Families and guests of all ages are invited to attend the free event, where guests can walk through a log cabin or a schoolhouse, watch a blacksmith at work, test one’s skill at grinding acorns or take a hayride, among many other activities.

Organizers have dusted off pre-pandemic plans and resurrected the indoor-outdoor event, said Museum Curator Amy King.
