  • We loved the tour and Joni was expert and enthusiastic. Anything she didn't know, she looked up back in the centre.

  • This is a pretty small museum that tells the local history of Sierra City, about its mining past. The best part here is Dianne, the curator, who also happens to be a member of the local historical...

  • This is a really fun afternoon, a must-see if you are in the area (once the museum is open again). Fascinating to get an understanding of the history of mining in the Sierras, also a nice natural setting for the kids to run around.
  • Very good mine museum run by a local historical society. Definitely get a tour, otherwise you can get inside the buildings and get a feel for the way the work was done. Most of the equipment on site was brought from other mines in the are to recreate the original setup. They have nice grounds with picnic tables and art affects on display.
