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!

The staff was friendly. The carriages were great. Some came with interesting stories. The wild blackberries growing along the back fence were sweet and tasty.

Cannot say enough about this great museum. There are many areas and buildings to explore. Make sure you take the time to talk to the guides and read. Jim was particularly knowledgeable and showed us details of the exhibits that we would not have known just by experiencing on our own. Don't be put off by some of the area... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the museum and carriage house. There are three buildings and several outdoor exhibits to see. Everything is well arranged and interestingly presented. We learned a lot! The docents are extremely knowledgable and love sharing their knowledge! They made our visit an absolute success! Don't miss it!

The vast and varied collection will appeal to everyone. The mining artifacts including the giant water wheel gave use a great background to the area miners. The extensive carriage collection included every type of wagon you could imagine. The staff were pleasant and willing to share their time. Too bad we ran out of time as it closes at 4:00.... More

This city owned and operated museum provides a classic view of life in these hills in the 1840s through the 1930s. A clear description of gold mining operations along with artifacts of life during the same period.A fabulous collection of wagons and carriages that were vital during those years.

The Angels Camp museum is a must do if you are visiting the area. The displays are filled with wonderful items that explain the gold era in that region. The display of carriages, and the stories about their owners and their use will take you back in time. Susan was our docent and explained every facet of the gold mine... More
