Thanks to its location, the Eureka Sentinel Museum is more like a combination of a museum and historical attraction. The museum is housed in a charming old building that once served as the main offices of the Eureka Sentinel from the late 1870?s till the 1960?s. In fact, the first floor of the museum is entirely devoted to a full-scale display of a pressroom typical in the late 19th century. All the equipment on display is original while its walls pay homage to posters that the newspaper had printed in its heyday.

Much of the city?s success - even that of the newspaper business - is due to the booming mining industry in those days, and this is another primary focus of the museum?s exhibits. In this exhibit, visitors are acquainted with the first tools used for mining as well as the different types of documents and other personal artefacts commonly used by miners.

The museum?s second floor, on the other hand, is dedicated to a wide selection of artefacts that bring to life Eureka in its old days. There are artefacts that were used in the kitchen, parlor, and the local school. There?s also a replica of a late 19th century barber shop, with its very own barber chair made more beautiful with its oak finish.
