We specifically went to Dinner Memorial State Park to go to the Emigrant Trail Museum. Being fairly local we have studied California History and the local history. Seeing as my daughter had finished grade 4 - she knows all about the Donner Party and even Patty Reid's Doll. We thought this would be a more interactive and multi age friendly museum to wrap up the history lesson ( we waited a year for museum renovation). It was highly disappointing as it was small, heavy to reading signs and not much on the way of interactive displays or real information relating to the plight of the Donner Party.
I certainly would not recommend going out of your way to see this museum.
