History offers much to learn, if people are willing to delve into it. Unfortunately, history is not always regarded as a cool subject. Often, the very mention of the word conjures images of musty books and droning professors.
These days, however, participatory experiences make the learning of history more engaging and entertaining. Consider walking tours, such as Underground After Hours, which is offered by the Sacramento History Museum.
As the name suggests, the activity leads participants on an evening walking tour to envision what a night out on the town was like during the Gold Rush. Unlike other tours, Underground After Hours tackles topics that most other museum exhibits would consider taboo, such as murder, mischief, and yes, even madams. Consequently, you visit gambling halls, saloons, and houses of ill repute during the tour.
