This museum is small, but full of interesting information and a very knowledgable guide. Small children will enjoy seeing the wagon and jail.

This is a great stop to learn about the Modac's. Captain Jack is buried there along with three of his colleagues for killing Canby. The out buildings were very interesting to look through as they are all that is left from the original fort.

Stopped by on my way up to Crater Lake when I saw that the gate was open. If you know anything about the Modoc War or the late 1800's-era history of the Klamath Basin, this stop will help fill out your picture of that era....More

It was really neat to see all of the old equipment and the stories behind them. It was really fun to walk through the history there and be able to touch it.
