They have some great local historical knowledge, photo's and cool stuff for the kids. The gold mining history is on display and they have an interactive display as well.
Great little museum, well done local history, friendly staff. Our son and both adults had a great time learning about the local history. Told from the perspective of three families who still have roots in the area today. A great little museum, remember to donate or buy something to help support this gem.
We wish we'd found this museum earlier in our stay, the staff are so knowledgable about the local area both now and historically. Great interactive displays for all ages, definitely worth a visit.
There are interesting historical displays, and changing ones, too. While visiting the museum you can ask questions from the friendly docent, and purchase a few interesting gifts of books, maps, etc.
Small, friendly museum with an adjacent library and good WiFi. The musem offers history of al the mines in Groveland area as well as History of Yosemite national park! They have a small viewing room where guests can view the many documentaries available. Taking time to speak with the docents rounds out the experience.
Small but with the displays it brings you back to the Gold Rush era, A small theater is available to view local documentaries. Kudos to the volunteers staff, Adjacent door is the Groveland Library with free WIFI and use of internet.
This was one of the most interesting small museums we have ever visited, packed with real human illustrated stories of past inhabitants of Groveland, the workings of gold mines and wood works, excellent films, interesting articles for sale and very friendly volunteer workers. Not to be missed while visiting Groveland as well as the self guided tour.
It was a very nice museum, very clean, very interesting to see all of the exhibits about people in the area at Groveland. We enjoyed it very much, there is a lot to see, they have books about the area & Yosemite, souvenirs etc. The gentleman at the museum was very knowledgeable about the history of the town & areas... 更多
