  • There is so much here to see and learn. We talked to a very helpful and knowledgeable docent. Be sure to have the kids participate in the scavenger hunt. Fun and educational. And a bargain to boot!

  • An amazing little gem in Mariposa. Excellent display of themed rooms. Very friendly and welcoming personnel’s. We only had half hour, it could take easily a few hours to go over. Got a book on Chinese history from museum store.
  • WOW! If you are into history and the specific time period this place has plenty to see. I was amazed that so many pieces of the old west were still in good repair and on display. The mining equipment outside is also worth a look. 👍🏻
