It's nothing to write home about, but if you're in Julian, you should definitely stop by. It's full of memorabilia and apparently they have decided to keep everything old and dusty to reflect it's age. It's a cheap activity and centrally located. Boring for kids,...More

There is lots to look at here but not well displayed. Old dusty place but does seem to fit the things in it. Only $3.00 so it's still worth a visit.

I've been here a few times over the years and always enjoy looking at the many historic items on display from the town in its mining days. I highly recommend it if you're strolling around Julian to get a little more immersed in its history.

If you have children this is an average museum because a lot of it is ready and "Please Do Not Touch" signs. It's cute but do not plan your day here. My 6 yr old son and I spend out 30 minutes inside. It's a...More

David is a great guy; he runs the place. Also does amazing historical town tours by appointment. Great way to spend a day!

fortunately, the dedicated volunteer opened on Martin Luther King Day, tho the museum is not usually open on Mondays. For $3 per person, we were diverted for 45 minutes by some interesting old-fashioned displays about the mining town's early days. worth it? Yeah.
