We had driven by a few times before we finally stopped by. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the museum included 2 large warehouse buildings behind the small museum on the Main Street. The front building had an informative display about Mark Twain and his connection to Angels Camp. There is information about the local history of mining and... More

We were so impressed with how many exhibits and items were on display. The transportation building has old wagons, buggies, and stagecoach, as well as a freight buckboard wagon. You get a real sense of the size of these and how they were operated. The Mining exhibits were educational and came with a brief guided tour that was outstanding! Amazing... More

The museum is in 4 parts. We saw 3 of them. We learned about the area's history and brought back schooling on the gold rush days. It was all fascinating.

From the street, this museum looks somewhat small, but... there are additional buildings & grounds to see! We (daughter & I) visited in Jan 2017 & had a great time! The front building is only a small portion of the museum grounds - there are 2 MUCH larger buildings as well as some things to see on the grounds. Also,... More

When my wife and I drove by, we were not driven to see this museum from the view along highway 49...however once we stopped and saw the 5 separate buildings that are behind the main building we knew this was going to be impressive and it was! Wow, really learn what happened back in the 1800's here and see what... More

An excellent representation of 19th century Americana. there is a terrific display of wagons, buggies, and hearse. Additional volunteers would enhance the exhibits. There is an variety of merchandise for purchase. This is a definite place to help children become aware of America's past. A gold panning option is available.

Museum was fun and exciting especially watching kid's try their hand at gold panning! The transportation exhibit was my favorite, and the story of Mr. Greeley taking a ride on the stage coach is funny.

A lot more to see than what you see at street level. Gives great insight into the history of the area as well as America in the gold rush era. Staff well informed and helpful. Allow a few hours to take in everything from Mark Twain to vehicles of the day to mining history. Great to take in at the... More

Spent 3 days in late October at the Angels Camp Museum. With so much to see, it's easy to spend hours there. Started in the main building where they have an old wood burning kitchen stove. The original cost was just a couple dollars purchased new approximately a century ago. Also many articles about Mark Twain and of course articles... More
