We appreciate your review of the museum. Many people think the museum is small when they first see it. Because it was the old fish hatchery building, it was built to those specifications. It was built in 1905 and became the museum in 1983.
This is a well organized, fun museum, which offers a lot to adults, families, and even younger children. The museum has artifacts from native Americans, mostly baskets and pictures; information about the railroad, with a place to sit and drive the locomotive. The gift shop...More

We loved your detailed review! With supporters like you, we will be able to continue to install new exhibits and maintain this historic building. I am sure your review will send more visitors our way, and we like that too. Thank you.
Very surprised by this little gem next to the fish hatchery. Many cool displays on geology, history, the railroad, and more. Dress up area for children with period clothes. They were having a quilt show. Interactive features encourage climbing and touching. My kids are teens...More

From the outside you would probably just drive by, but take the time to go in an explore. A very hands on museum about Mt. Shasta and the railroads that helped build the area. It would be so much fun for kids, but as an...More

This amazing place is stuffed to the rafters with interesting things for the kids to climb on, walk through, put on, and play with. They can walk through a volcano, climb on a fire truck, play in a log cabin, pet a stuffed bear, play...More

We appreciate your review. One thing we like to say is, "In every room of the museum, there is something for kids and adults." It seems like you agree!
Having the fish hatchery on the same property offers a variety of activities for all. Thanks!
We decided to stop here and spend 15-20 minutes at most. We were there for more than an hour and learned so much about the area (expected) and volcanos (not expected). The video presentation is self-guided and very well done (could have been louder) and...More
