The Museum was wonderful. So much history from the local area. Found my family from the 1920s. Volunteers so helpful and obviously very committed. Please visit or just send donations to keep this special place alive!

When coming into Quincy CA for the first time...the first visit should be to the local museum. Located behind the grand and glorious Courthouse this small but informative collection gives a new visitor the perfect foundation for further explorattion. Staff is exceptional. Displays are well-done. The small library offers a weath of literary knowledge to look thru and purchase.

For a small museum, tucked away in a very rural area of CA; this is an excellent musuem. Staff is very welcoming and friendly. They have a wide variety of displays from logging, horse buggys to fine art. Definitely worth a 30 - 45 minute visit.

If you are travelling through Quincy, a visit to the Plumas County Museum is a must. Many Native American and mining-era artifacts give you a real appreciation for the history of this region and California in general. A real gem!

I didn't get a chance to visit the museum on my last trip to Quincy. But, if you are interested in the history of the area, this the place to see. They change their displays often, so there is always something new to see.

While in Quincy for an afternoon we went into this museum and were very pleasantly surprised. For a small local museum it had an amazing and diverse collection. The displays of Maidu Indian baskets was awesome, the best examples of Indian basketry we've seen. There was an exceptional section about the often over-looked early Chinese population and the important role... More
