A part of Tallac Historic Site, the Baldwin Museum showcases the early days of Lake Tahoe settlement. The museum offers displays that give an inside look into the plights and highs of the founding settlers, the toys of yesteryear that kept the children of the area busy as well as the way that a family kept themselves fed and thriving. The museum has a small gift shop, which also serves as the location for purchasing tickets for any of the shows that the Tallac Historic Site puts on during the summer, including plays, musicals, concerts, ballet performances and art-appreciation festivals. There is no admission fee, and the museum is open seasonally from late May to mid-September each year.
