This is a fairly nice museum. It seems like it would be small inside, especially since the gift shop takes u 1/2 the space, but it is power packed inside. They have some great exhibits/displays and a great deal of reading the the times and events during the heh days of 1850's-90's in this area. Gold did not pan out after a while and things declined.
There used to be a movie set out in the Wilderness, and they replicated some items, and carried back the church and some buildings. Now they have been working on a gold grinder in the back, that is rather to be close up to see the size, and note how it works.
