Museum was fun and exciting especially watching kid's try their hand at gold panning! The transportation exhibit was my favorite, and the story of Mr. Greeley taking a ride on the stage coach is funny.

A lot more to see than what you see at street level. Gives great insight into the history of the area as well as America in the gold rush era. Staff well informed and helpful. Allow a few hours to take in everything from Mark Twain to vehicles of the day to mining history. Great to take in at the... More

Spent 3 days in late October at the Angels Camp Museum. With so much to see, it's easy to spend hours there. Started in the main building where they have an old wood burning kitchen stove. The original cost was just a couple dollars purchased new approximately a century ago. Also many articles about Mark Twain and of course articles... More

Went with my mom. Museum has four buildings, encompassing history, antique cars and stage coaches, mining, medicine, tools, and of course, Frog Jumping (Mark Twain, Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.... well this is the place, and I didn't even know that when I planned the vacation.) Admission $7, and for $5 extra, you can learn how to pan for... More

Our group had the best guide and tour through this gem of a museum! Chuck (our docent) and the friendly staff gave us a history lesson of early California and the intrepid settlers who came to make their fortune in the California Gold Rush in the 1800's. We ended our tour in the Mark Twain exhibit - plan to spend... More

It's much more extensive than we expected, with three full buildings and outdoor exhibits. I came away with a much greater appreciation for the area's Gold Rush history.

This was a real bonus for us. From the Mark Train exhibit to the carriages and mining equipment it was a real find. Very interesting displays, the staff in both the Mark Twain area and the one in the mining, farming, and carriage areas were very good. Nice to have one museum where you can get a very good feel...

This was a large museum with three different buildings and a walking path. Also had a panning for gold experience for any who wanted to give it a shot. The carriage house was very interesting with different modes of transportation. The lower building was filled with tools and paraphernalia found in old mining towns. Both were very interesting. We could... More
