Wonderful architecture, great history of the building, fantastic exhibits, what more can you ask for! This was truly a walk through time, from the early 1800's through the early 1900's. An eclectic mixture of items, from vintage phonographs to weapons to clothing, you name it!...More

The building is the cornerstone of the property which also houses the train, historic housing, the gift shop, and outdoor mining equipment. A lot here and a good place to take kids.

If you have limited time, make this your first priority. The museum houses a fabulous collection of history from the Last Great Gold Boom in the late 1800's and early 1900's. All ages will enjoy this walk through history.
