  • We didn’t think we will enjoy much this museum but actually we learned a lot about the history of Mariposa and around. I recommend you to visit it.  more »
  • So much history in this amazing museum. It is stuffed full of things related to the Gold Rush, the railroad, early inhabitants of the area. Doesn't look like much but worth the stop!  more »

  • We followed up mineral and mining museum with a quick drive to this great museum. It is filled with so much information, exhibits and artifacts you really need at least two hours to get through. There is a great balance of archaeological and historical pieces from native Americans, Spanish settlers, Mexican governors, Chinese immigrants, ranchers, miners and explores. We are planning a trip back.
  • This was a great day trip. Enjoyed reading about the history of the gold era and looking at all the exhibits. It took us about 2 hours and only cost 5$.
