The Angels Camp Museum, gift shop, and Calaveras Visitors Bureau, is located right inside the entrance to the museum. Here you’ll find historic and Gold Rush era souvenirs, plus fun and educational gifts, hats, t-shirts, books on local history, and much more.

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 Mark Twain Exhibit, Ranching and Mining exhibits, and our new Frog Jump History exhibit.
Continuing through the museum, visitors can also view two steam traction engines, an overshot water-wheel in its original location, a hydraulic monitor, drills, ore cars and even a working model of a famous stamp mill. Also check out one of the oldest and best preserved little red schoolhouses in the state, the Altaville Schoolhouse, just down the road from the Angels Camp Museum.
