Great place to visit and learn. Beautiful grounds with plenty of history and photo opportunities. The reason for 4 $ is due to the cost of the museum.

Affiliated with the Smithsonian Institute, the various buildings offer a great deal of the history of this locale to include mining, pioneers, the first Governor's Mansion, period transportation, etc. This is a stop to be sure to make. Even the staff members are especially helpful.
