Way better than I thought it was going to be.

It was a really cool experience. There’s even a sluice box at the end to use for treasure bags you purchase at the gift shop. My only negative is there is no bathroom on the upper floors so to use the restroom you have to travel through the museum.

Hello! Thank you for the great review! We are so glad you had a great time with us! The sluice has been a very popular addition! We hope to see you again soon!

Great experience, once again. It's been more than 7 years since we were here and the archway has been improved in access, audio and overall exhibit. Love the trail and park across the roadway too.

Seeing what our ancestors had to go through was impressive. Glad I didn't have to endure that hard way of traveling. Big photos were very helpful to show the challenges of life in the 1800s and early 1900s.

It was great! My 5 year old loved using the hand held voice tour and checking everything out. Then mined for fossils (or gems whatever you prefer)!

Fun! Good for kids. We got there at 4:30 & didn’t realize it closed at 5:00pm. Plan for 45 min to not be rushed.
