  • An awesome value, no admissions fee, just a suggested donation. Incredibly interesting glimpse into how life was 100 years ago in a frontier mining town. Jay in the mining shop was awesome, explaining how everything works.
  • A great side trip driving up the 395. They gave our kids a sheet with pictures and a crayon to do a scavenger hunt while we walked around. It kept the kids from getting bored while the adults read the signs around the museum
  • A great experience so cheap suggest donations is 5 for adults and it worth every penny ,is like a little town with furnished houses real trains is one of the best museums l visited that shows the real California with the gold rush
  • Kids had a great time. its a self guided tour.
  • Great piece of history in the Owens Valley. Lots of exhibits to explore and a train and coach to climb in. Great for the while family.
