Tour of The Packard Family

in the California Museum
 
updated Sept. 22, 2007


I was contacted by the California Museum (http://www.californiamuseum.org) in Sacramento in November, 2006 about borrowing one of my HP200B units for the Packard Family exhibit for the newly created California Hall of Fame that opened in December, 2006 and runs to about October, 2007.  I was glad and honored to make the loan.  I visited the museum on June 5, 2007 while on a trip to Palo Alto to take some pictures.  The following is a brief tour.

The California Museum is located near the corner of 'O' Street and 10th Street. A trolly line runs in front.


A side view of the museum.  The state capital is about a block to the left.


This is the main lobby as you enter the museum from the street.  This is a brief summary of the thirteen inductees for 2006. 


The California Hall of Fame exhibit is on the second floor and this is the main entrance after climbing the stairs.


 
The Packard Family exhibit is located just to the left of the main second floor entrance.


Here is a broad view of the exhibit.
