We stopped here to beat the heat and were pleasantly surprised with the displays. Gave a good history of the town and a "movie" of Boldt Castle (that we watched before going there)

A must see place. The gift shop is good, the main displays are good, the Boldt Castle movie is great, and the new clothing history show is also well done.

First time I have been back yo this place in years. It was a white elephant when it was built and seems to be about the same now. Only redeeming quality is that it is free for 2016 instead of the posted $5 admission fee....More
