  • It never occurred to me that there would be such a cool little museum dedicated to the history of the Mount Shasta region. Well worth a visit. It's a nice break from all the outdoor activities!  more »

  • We enjoyed the diverse exhibits and activities in the museum. It is interesting for adults, fun for kids. Beautiful setup. Best indoor activity in the area.
  • My kid ask me to take him back every weekend. Fun place.
  • This is a great interactive museum. Lots for kids and adults alike to do and learn. When you are done there, walk outside and feed the fish at the hatchery, our bring a picnic lunch to enjoy at the shady park adjacent.
  • Our family loves this place. The museum is one of the best indoor kid activities we have found in the area so far--there's a playroom with lots of toys, an old firetruck to climb on, a recreated ninteeth century resort cabin with dress up items, a train engineer's console, and soon a lava tube to crawl through. I love the area history and the local information, and I love keeping the kids busy. Plus, feeding the fish is a very unique experience.
  • Very interesting it's a lot of interactive displays we had a lot of fun also the fish hatchery is right next door so you get to feed the fish and just a great day afternoon go there you won't be sorry
