  • Incredible collection of wagons/carriages and so many interesting historical items! I would love to join a guided, informational tour and presentation to learn more of our pioneer history. Lucky are the school and other groups to visit in good weather and enjoy the small outdoor class area and the picnic area. I think they could use more volunteers to organize and catalogue the immense collection. Unfortunately, I live 2,000 miles away, but will definitely visit again if I return.
  • Stumbled across this gem quite unexpectedly. . .don't let the small store front fool you. . .extensive museum with very knowledgeable staff. . .wish we had more time. . .spent 2 hours learning about the area, gold mining and historic carriages . . .loved it. . .the staff has great pride and knowledge of their collection.
  • Nice place. Not a lot to do and small town. Prepare to drive 30+ minutes to see local attractions and shopping. Accomodations were awesome. Fully equipped. Parking in front. Pool, game room, etc. Wildlife abounds. Some units back up against a thoroughfare and the gut with the motorcycle is loud. The trip to see the big trees is AWESOME!
  • Lots of history, but don't let the small building at the road fool you. The museum has 3 major buildings, 5 interior displays and outdoor displays as well. So plan at least 3 hours minimum. I enjoyed the display of health care of the area, from the 1800 till present, carriage house; wagons light weight to 32 ton hauling, farming, gold mining, and Mark twain history. WOW.
  • The upper part of the museum has a lot of info about the history of Angels Camp, Mark Twain's early life and becoming a writer, and the Jumping Frog Jubilee, with various old and interesting objects on display. Down a level, there's a section that details the history of medicine in the area. The middle building has a bunch of old carts, wagons, and carriages. (I loved this section WAY more than that sentence made it sound.) The lower building is about mining and farming. (Also great!) Overall, there was a ton of fascinating stuff to look at! And the guide we talked to shared loads of fascinating stuff about printing and mining. Would definitely recommend a stop if you're in the area.
