Interesting, low key, historic displays, a nice break from the weather and as an interlude for other more active activities. Plus I learned a lot: so much better than just looking something up on the internet!

We stopped at the museum after having lunch and before the Christmas Parade. The museum provides overview of early Placer County history. It also includes the Placer County Gold collection, the renowned Pate Collection of American Indian artifacts.

Our family of 5, 6 and 11 year old daughters thoroughly enjoyed the museum. It was a great surprise and well worth a quick stop. It is just starting out but easily accessed from Hwy 80, easy parking and free! Not to miss as an intro to the Gold Rush!

Thoroughly enjoyed visiting this museum. It has many local artifacts relating to Auburn and the gold rush history of the area. A great film runs continuously giving additional historic information. A must see on a visit to Auburn
