Visitors can stroll through the beautifully landscaped historical park to explore extensive indoor and outdoor exhibits that include Mark Twain, ranching, mining, and minerals, and interactive exhibits that include a human frog jump where you can try to out-jump Rosie the Ribiter and and learn how to gold pan just like the miners of 1849. Also, check out the free exhibit of 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.
