  • It won't take too much out of your day to stop here and learn about the unique gold mining history of the area. Convenient parking.
  • Best history museum of several I visited recently. And it has a wonderful book selection.
  • Great place for kids and adult to learn more about California's unique history and how the Gold Rush shaped our state.
  • Quaint museum describing the gold rush days of Mariposa about 150 years ago. It is relatively small but full of goodies for anyone interested in history. Don't forget the outside exhibits and support the museum with its nominal admission fee.
  • Wonderful history and sell my pendants.
