My companion said this was the best museum she had ever visited. It's not like the Smithsonian, but it has a little bit of everything. It is well organized and gives you the feeling you are visiting the area during the Gold Rush over 150...More

It was okay. Staff was friendly. A little hot as there was zero air conditioning in most of the exhibits but overall a decent, fair experience.

I thought a bunch of wagons and carriages might be boring, but we had a great time looking at each one, debating which of the small black ones would have belonged to Doc Adams in Gunsmoke. We finally did find one exactly like it.

Don't miss this museum. If you "just drive by", you may think it's a single building. It's not! Several buildings are behind it, in the design of an old stamp mill, and it's well worth the visit. It's actually located at the site of an...More

This looks at first like a small place, but it has a big area and more buildings in back. The signage throughout was excellent and informative. A great collection of carriages and wagons.

We were so impressed with how many exhibits and items were on display. The transportation building has old wagons, buggies, and stagecoach, as well as a freight buckboard wagon. You get a real sense of the size of these and how they were operated. The...More

I was there in October. The museum is amazing. The books include a lot of history, gold rush, the land, and a few about women in that era. I think some related to Mark Twain. I didn't buy any books, but I looked at a... More
