  • We had no idea how interesting and thorough this little place would be. Lots of history, lots of artifacts, and they had made a concerted effort to have a lot of interactive displays. I wished we had ...  more »

  • Pretty cool little museum and it's interactive so yes the kids can touch stuff! Nice little place to stop if you're traveling through the area.
  • It was nice little museum top stop by. Little play area was nice for little kids and the staff was friendly
  • It had some cool artifacts and then when you walk out they have a fish hatchery
  • Pretty neat to see all the different things here.
  • If you are ever in the Mount Shasta area, be sure to visit this interesting and informative museum. It's located at the site of the oldest trout fish hatchery west of the mississippi. You will find a well stocked gift shop, maps of the area, and information sheets on the many natural wonders. Don't miss it. Open June -- Sept. 10 am to 4 pm & April, May & Oct. -- Dec. 1 pm to 4pm
