Amazing historical museum, lots of buildings to explore, free gold panning for kids, and don’t miss the blacksmith demonstration! We learned a lot about the area, highly recommend.
Great experience. The panning for gold was amazing! We really liked the school house. It was classy. Shay cabin was very interesting.
Great local museum. Of note this museum consists of several out buildings that you have to walk between. This makes for a very hot experience on a warm summer day. Thank goodness they sold cold bottled root beer for $2 which helped keep moral high.
The grounds are loose gravel and sand. You can see all the exhibits in about an hour. The kid's favorite was panning for gold. You can purchase a small vial in the gift shop for 50 cents to bring some "gold" aka fool's Gold, home with you. All of the volunteers at the museum were incredible! Such a wealth of knowledge and interesting facts they really made the experience.
I loved this Museum. Everyone was really nice and they had someone to tell you a little about what you where looking at. I loved it. I would go back even if I have seen everything. Sometime you might think you have seen it all till you go back and have a second look. Go check them out!
