What a wonderful museum!
#1 of 1 Museums in Coloma
There are great docent-led tours (in period dress), an excellent visitor's center and museum, gold-panning, picnicking, river access, a working blacksmith shop, old-fashioned general store, improved hiking trails...
It's a nice walk around the park to visit the outdoor mining exhibits, town buildings, miner's cabin, blacksmith, school, post office, etc. and of course the re-creation of the sawmill that started it all.
#2 of 4 Museums in Placerville
Two rooms with some interesting local history.
Very small museum but worth a trip.

They also will bring at least one telescope to special public events around El Dorado County.
