  • 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.  more »

  • Great historical collection of California Gold Rush life. Features a very interesting collection of carriages. The gold panning activity is fun and oddly addictive, even knowing there's no actual gold to be found.
  • Excellent way to learn about Gold Rush era history and the beginning of Angels Camp. Huge exhibition that covers the biggest boom in California! Bring your walking shoes.
  • I don't like people tracking me!!
  • We stopped by hoping to 'kill some time' with our 13 YO niece. I could have 'killed' the entire day there - it was not only surprising, it was fantastic. The staff are off-the-charts wonderful and the collection of artifacts amazing. Our niece had a blast panning for gold with Jim and learned so much via the scavenger hunt the museum has for kids. I found the history of the area and particularly the history of Twain fascinating. I would recommend this gem to everyone with any interest in the past.
  • Lots of interesting stuff here, nice staff
