Home to one of the largest collections of carriages and wagons in the nation, Angels Camp Museum is an international destination with more than 30,000 square feet of exhibits on Gold Rush history. Visitors can stroll through the beautifully landscaped historical park to explore extensive indoor and outdoor exhibits that include a doctor’s office and The Mark Twain Exhibit, as well as ranching and artisan exhibits.

Continuing through the museum, visitors can also view two steam traction engines and exhibits highlighting mining equipment such as an overshot water-wheel in its original location, a hydraulic monitor, drills, ore cars and even a working model of a famous stamp mill.

Guided tours of the museum are offered daily during open hours with a reservation at least two weeks in advance. Groups must be minimum six people and maximum 60 people. A tour lasts 90 minutes and costs the same as general admission group rate. Call for more information.

Bring your lunch and enjoy a picnic under native oak trees of China Gulch where the ’49ers prospected for gold. Enjoy our gold panning experience station and learn how to gold pan!

Stop by the gift shop for one-of-a-kind souvenirs including a copy of Mark Twain’s infamous story ‘The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.’
