Awesome museum full of desert mining history and pics. Great place to learn about Beatty area and Death Valley. 10 to 3 hours so plan your arrival. We'll worth it.

While visiting the Death Valley Area we headed for Beatty and saw this museum along the road. We stopped. This is a local museum with lots of local history in it and has lots of neat old stuff. The locals who put this together are very proud of their town and its history. A good free stop in a small... More

the museum was cool to browse through - and FREE! lots of interesting things for sure. My personal great pleasant surprise was the selection of books on the area in general, prospecting, Death Valley and more. Put Barnes and Noble in Vegas to shame.
