Clarke Historical Museum
240 E Street


What is there to do?

Located in the heart of Old Town Eureka, at the corner of Third and E Streets, the Clarke Historical Museum is one of the gems of the North Coast!

Even the building is part of the history, with this 1912 former bank building featuring as the location of the museum, filled with exhibits that show the history of Humboldt County, with emphasis on the late 1800's.

Kids can explore the history of early industries of Humboldt County, as well as transport back in time in the Victorian Room. Kids, use those imaginations as you explore the room, what do you think it would have been like to life all those years ago? Pretty different to your homes today, we imagine!

Clarke Historical Museum also has a fascinating mineral collection collected by Cecile Clarke over the years, from opals, quartz, silver and more!

Then you have Nealis Hall, the Native American wing of the Clarke Museum, an area dedicated to honoring and teaching about local Native American tribes.
