  • This museum was a fab little find. It's quite hidden and not advertised so much. If you like history definitely stop by here, there is also loads to see outside. Its free to enter and they have some awesome local books in their shop. I can't wait to return.
  • Very nice museum with a lot of unique items. Rare images of the region. Also a lot of iron made things outside in the garden. You can spend a half day there.
  • A great place to see, very informative of the area history, with many items of the past, including a train
  • I wish that I could have seen the restored locomotive up close.
  • Lots of fun things to see and explore. The newly rebuilt Slim Princes #18 is a hit, hope they can get it out on some track soon and open her up! Check out the pictures and story about the DWP acquduct and all the displays of the Owens Valley history.
