Great, lots of really interesting exhibits. Even the ladies at our hotel didn't know it existed though!? My husband could have spent the whole day looking at their extensive exhibits. Ladies at visitor center couldn't have been more helpful or enthusiastic.

This extensive museum covers many aspects of local history, from native Americans through white settlement, the gold rush , to farming and famous people with up to date and fascinating exhibits. We spent two hours but could have spent the day.
