This museum has grown over the years, from a room in the courthouse basement to a large multi-floor museum with outbuildings and barns. It is a comprehensive showcase of the history of Trinity County and California Gold Rush.

This is an extremely nice museum, especially for a small town. Including the outdoor exhibits, the stamp mill, and additionally housed artifacts, one can easily spend several hours there.
