New Almaden Quicksilver Mine Reviews

각종 오래된 물건들이 전시?? 방치?? 되어있는 장소였습니다. 미국인들의 오래전 생활 모습을 볼수 있었는데 신기한 물건도 꽤 많이 보였습니다. more »Various old things to exhibit?? Neglect?? It was a place. I was able to see the life of Americans long ago, and it looked pretty much strange.
I've lived in the San Jose area for 20 years and never realized this museum existed. We went for my son's 4th grade field trip and I loved it so much that I would definitely go back and would also recommend it to others. The museum is very informative about the mining process and the history of the area during that time. They have a lot of displays and an area that describes the typical day in the life of a miner. A portion of the museum has been decorated in the time frame of that era so you can see how the mining manager might have lived as he sought investors for the company. We also had a picnic lunch on the grounds and did a brief walk around the town to see some of the old homes and the graveyard. It was a lovely day and a fantastic field trip.
Great local history and explanation on the quicksilver mining process. Note: only open F-Tu 1200-1600
