  • Very interesting museum. I learned a lot of things I didn’t know about mining in the old west. Also, it was nice seeing some of the old wagons that were used.  more »
  • You wouldn't believe how large the museum is. Looks are deceiving when you see the museum at street level. The great surprise is there are 2 very large buildings displaying old wagons and carriages, a...  more »

  • 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.
  • The entrance gives no clue as to the amount of information and items available. If you have young ones they will enjoy learning how to pan for gold.
  • Look at your own pace. Gifts are reasonable
  • Awesome place. Great tour and for only 7 bucks.
