“Learn about OLD HANGTOWN!”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

Located near the entrance to THE ELDORADO COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS in Placerville, CA., this quaint museum caters to all ages and interests. Indian artifacts, train memorabilia and Gold Rush era are well displayed and the attending docents are well versed in all the displays.

“Small but informative”
Reviewed April 20, 2009

Very small museum, but large on information . Museum workers are more than happy to answer any questions . Since it was not busy, we got a private tour!
