    Very original Museum managed by an association, which explains and illustrates the life at the time of the gold mines and local life by many objects. Very interesting and well done, price super reasonable $5 per adult and free for children

    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.
