I like visiting here because I get a chance to see some of my ancestors in the museum. It gives a wonderful perspective on Folsom and the gold rush era.

Just a fun, but very informative, small local museum. If you have a kid that you want to familiarize them with the California gold rush, this is the place. The lady in the front was very nice and very helpful! Glad we went!
