This was quite a surprise, we were expecting something really small, but it wasn't, a few buildings and lots of history. Most items have been donated. We thoroughly enjoyed this, even a working blacksmith. Price is only $5.00 and children are free. The docents are full of information and you can tell they are really enjoying sharing the history with... 更多
My kids loved this place. There was a free gold panning area where the kids got to pan for gold. We purchased little glass bottles in the gift shop to put the gold in. They were $.50 each (recommend buying one per person, otherwise you will be holding all the little specks of gold). The blacksmith was out making horseshoes... 更多
We were pleasantly surprised by our visit to the Big Bear Historical Museum. It's far more extensive than we had thought, with almost a dozen historical buildings/structures to wander through. The parking was free, and the entry fee was only $5--well worth such a modest fee. The initial building houses a gift shop & lots of displays featuring old photos... 更多
Everyone should go and visit this place. I WISH they had more but they are trying and I think Volunteers mostly run the place. I wish I had time to help. They even sell sarsaparilla drinks there! We bought two to share and taste! It was a very interesting visit and I would go back again sometime!!! Limited hours! Do... 更多
The museum I small but full of historical information. We enjoyed the old house and the lady narrator that was inside was very friendly and told us about the history of the old cabin and how it was moved to its present location. We also went into the old school house, which brought back old memories of how things were... 更多
Plan to spend at least two hours here for adults, probably one hour for children. Definitely interesting artifacts including a restored horse drawn hearse and operating blacksmith shop. The mining exhibits are quite interesting the log cabin quite interesting the "hollywood" connection informative. If you like Southern California history then visit the museum.
This museum is so interesting... My husband and I enjoyed it so much... It's a very compact location but has so many artifacts and interesting things to see. The people that run the show are very knowledgeable and give you a lot of insight about the happenings in this area..
At first, when my family and I walked up to the main building from the parking lot, we weren't impressed. Once we got inside and bought our tickets, which were cheap for what you got, and met the staff, we started to view differently. The staff was extremely helpful and very informative with the history of the mining days of... 更多

The docents were great and giving out facts and involving the visitors. We went opening weekend - Saturday before Memorial Day. The gold panning was fun and the demonstrator was patient and kind... 更多
