Think I am giving the museum three stars because I had visited the CA Trail Interpretive Ctr, in Elko, NV, which is newer & more comprehensive in its presentations. For a small museum, I think the staff is just trying to keep up. Where the laminated reading material was difficult to read due to reflection, they also had a button so that one could hear the commentary instead. I cannot really complain about the museum, knowing what their funding is. But I really wanted somebody to clean the cobwebs off the mannequins, which is easy to do. I also wandered outdoors to visit the statue & the site where one cabin had once stood. Think we're all still engrossed with the fate of this group of emigrants- I wish I could have explored the greater park as well, but I had to go back on my own trail.
