Although this is in the entrance to the bank the stage coach is worth the visit. It's in perfect condition and there are a few things to see in the lobby.

Beautiful display of the Wells Fargo carriage. The history is very interesting. You do want to stay around for a while and look at all the details of the carriage.

Don't blow by this one. This is a rather different "museum" in the bank lobby. The Wells Fargo building lobby is large and the company has put it to good use, staging a small museum right where you walk in. Center stage - a stage...More

This is a small museum in the lobby of the bank. We visited the museum with grandkids, 5 and 8, and we all enjoyed the visit. Displays are well done and informative.

The "museum" shares the lobby of the Wells Fargo Building on Capitol Mall with one of Sacramento's better restaurants, Il Fornaio. Combining the two makes for a very nice evening. The "museum" is better described as a collection of Old West objects and history. A...More
