Mount Shasta City was known as the town of Sisson until it was renamed in 1924. The museum building was erected in 1906 and served as the main hatchery building of the California Department of Fish and Game Mount Shasta Fish Hatchery until it was declared no longer usable 72 years later. A group of civic minded citizens obtained a lease on the building and start-up funding from the state under the umbrellas of the local Chamber of Commerce, and the building was renovated depending heavily on donated material and labor. The Museum has welcomed over 300,000 visitors since it opened in 1983, and we hope you will visit soon. The Sisson Museum is located 1/4 mile west on the central Mount Shasta I-5 interchange on the fish hatchery grounds.
