"This is a very well laid out small museum. It provides a great overview and explanation of the history of the Gold Rush region. We have seen a lot of small regional and county museums -- highly recommend this one to travelers in the area."
"On the second floor is truly one of the largest and best, most interesting history museums I have ever seen anywhere. Room after room of fascinating things with great description cards telling really interesting stories of early California, and the fascinating people, buildings, things, gold mining...", outlaws, and sheriffs of the 1800s. There are whole rooms set up to show what things looked like in the 1800s, including: A full size courtoom with jury chairs, a court library, an office, a bedroom, and more... And one large room has a display of Native American things, plus the actual original, extremely old little courthouse, made of boards from China - before California had any lumber mills!
We started on the first floor though, and saw the jailhouse and a fascinating display of a very good looking, honest, and fair sheriff whose story will remind you very much of The Andy Griffith Show.
