If you love Mark Twain this is the place to go. The museum has three different buildings and gold panning. This is a fun family place , the workers there are very helpful and kind, but on a hot day I do not recommend going. Two of the buildings are not air conditioned and can be very hot, but if... More

There is not a lot to do in Angels Camp as most of the area attractions you drive to. This little museum is fun and interesting. Along with the artifacts, carriages, and wagons is an interesting display about Samuel Clemens.

This is a well done museum if you are interested in learning about the area and the gold rush days in the Sierra Mountains. Members of the staff were wonderful to talk with and had a great deal of knowledge to share. This museum appeared to have a more complete display of items than other small museums we have been...

We had a great time at the museum. It's a true glimpse into the past. The kids were really into the scavenger hunt. It was really awesome to see so many artifacts in one place from washing machines to an old fashioned coffee grinder. The carriages were so amazing, and most of them in such great condition. It's pretty amazing... More

This was a fun museum for us. The kids enjoyed the scavenger hunt for kids. We all enjoyed the exhibits and learning more about the area. It helps to know the history for the Gold Rush time period while exploring the area.

We been to Angels Camp many times and finally had the time to tour the museum. If you like learning about the gold rush days in the sierra foothills and Mark Twain, this is the place for you. They also have the largest carriage collection in California. The best part of the museum is hearing the history of Angels Camp... More

If you enjoy exploring Gold Rush history, you will enjoy a trip to the local museum. The carriage house is a recent addition and has all kinds of old buggies in it. If you are looking to learn more about local history, this place will not disappoint!
