    This place was fantastic. We hit the museum(s) in every town we visit, and this was without doubt one of the most educational stops we have had. The building looks like a small town tourist trap from the road, but there is an amazing amount of 19th century stuff on display. I doubt that even the Smithsonian displays so many button shoes! The Mark Twain exhibit is very well done, also. Then there are the 3+ acres of grounds, the friendly docents. Do not miss this – if you are into California history, especially the Gold Rush, this is a must see. Be sure to bring your 4th grader.

    A LOT bigger than it looks. Actually it’s like a little self-contained village full of info about Angels Camp and the county. One thing I’ve noticed after years of visiting Angels Camp… and the surrounding communities is that when you engage a local in a conversation about history they can usually tell you a story or 10.. This museum is no exception and we had a blast.

    Amazing museum with scads of antiques! The docents were VERY knowledgeable and eager to share the history of their county. From the road it looks like a small-town little museum, but when you go in it opens to several buildings and acres of history. Must see.
