“Wonderful surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

We were sent here by the people at the gas station for a map of Death Valley. We were so pleasantly surprised by this family type museum, in that the woman operating it had her lovely little 3 month old daughter right there with her. It was a pleasure to talk to her, and find out about the area.

“To friendly??”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

Small museum, chock full of history. Could spend 2 hours. Lady overseeing the place is too chummy. You can hear her talking to others while you are view and reading, and then she "latches on to you" to slow your progress. It would have been okay, but we did not expect them to be open on the day we visited (per internet) and had already spent way more time at Rhyolite than we expected to.

“An Unexpected Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

One would not know it from the look of Beatty today, but at one time it was a thriving and busy town. Inside this little museum is an eclectic collection of memorabilia of Beatty's past.The museum staff is eager to answer questions and talk about Beatty's history. Admission is free.Well worth a detour on the way to Death Valley.
