A very interesting historical memorabilia collection of Folsom. A block from the museum; one could view a yard full of many historical equipments, tools, passenger train and a chance to experience panning for gold!

We went because they had a quilt special exhibition, which was wonderful. Then we looked through the rest of the items on display and it was also very informative. Will bring our out-of-town guests eventually!

Wonderful local museum highlighting the city of Folsom's past, with rotating exhibits and great permanent exhibit. The museum is a short walk from the light rail station making access super easy. The museum is great for all ages.
