Spent a pleasant afternoon strolling through the exhibits. Lots of interesting artifacts from gold rush days. They are undergoing renovations but are still open.

This really is a neat spot but the construction is everywhere. They have wonderful mounts of the native wildlife and an area that has rooms that are furnished as they would have been in the early 1900's. There were a couple of families there and...More
