Friendly staff, exhibits that change, this is one of the best museums I have found in a small town. Clean, informative, you will not be disappointed at the amount of history in Oroville.

This is such a wonderful little Museum filled with fascinating memorabilia and facts about this tiny town. The people that run this place are pleasant and friendly. Lots to look at and you truly get a feel for what it was like back then.
