Although Angels Camp Museum may look rather small from Highway 49, it's a couple of acres of wonderful Gold Rush era exhibits. Well worth a couple of hours. The Carriage House has an amazing array of buggies, carriages, wagons, even a funeral carriage and a fully restored stage coach.

Open 10-4, admission $5. This 30,000 square-foot city operated museum is home to the largest collection of carriages and wagons in the nation. Of course you will see carriages and wagons, but will also see a collection of steam tractors, a fine collection of rocks and minerals, a water wheel in its original position, a large, well organised Mark Twain...

DISCLAIMER: I went thru the docent training program. However, the reason why I did the docent program was because I was so impressed with the museum. You will not only learn a few interesting facts about Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain), but you will see interesting local artifacts that help illustrate early life in Angels Camp and the Gold Country in...

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.

One of many turist attraction they have in Angels Camp. The museum is not too big, it is informative and educational. It is local Museum, do not expect too much.

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
