“Working gold "mine" in good condition”

Kentucky Mine Museum
Attraction details
Reviewed July 15, 2012

I went there 2 years ago, that tour is wonderful. The "stamp" is in good condition, then the curator will do actual demonstration for you. Ok, this Kentucky Mine Museum is not as famous as the "Empire Mine" one, if you ask me, I like this one much better, because it actually run. I am planning to go back again. Really like this "mine" museum.

This is a must see stop if your on highway 49 near Sierra City. The museum gives a great representation of the gold rush and the mines that were worked in the area such as the Sierra Buttes Mine.

The docents provide a splendid account of the workings of the kentucky mine and mill with a demonstration of the stamp mill and one of the few working pelton wheels.
