Angels Camp Museum is the premier local history museum in Northern California. Located on a 3-acre site of the now defunct Angels Quartz Mine, the museum dedicates collections to inspire understanding of the gold country history of Angels Camp and the Mother Lode region. We create opportunities for learning, discovery and present the extraordinary stories of our country’s past.

Home to one of the largest collections of carriages and wagons in the nation, Angels Camp Museum is a destination. Take a walk in this historical park to explore both indoor and outdoor exhibits that include a doctor's office, a rock & mineral garden, photographs, as well as ranching and farming related artifacts. Visitors can also view two steam traction engines and exhibits highlighting mining equipment such as an overshot water-wheel in its original location, a hydraulic monitor, drills, ore cars and even a working model of a famous stamp mill.

Bring your lunch and enjoy a picnic under native oak trees of China Gulch where the '49ers prospected for gold. Make sure to check out the Altaville Schoolhouse - one of the oldest and best preserved little red schoolhouses in the state, and the historical Sam Choy mercantile that tells the story of Chinese culture in downtown Angels Camp. Stop by the gift shop for one-of-a-kind souvenirs including a copy of Mark Twain's infamous story 'The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.'
