Mariposa, CA 95338

The museum is dedicated to helping families and students learn about the importance of mining and minerals to our history, our environment, and our future.  We offer free activities for children and youth groups, including our Junior Ranger Program.  We also provide school tours relating to geology, rocks and minerals, the gold rush, and mining history to hundreds of students each year. We encourage teachers and youth groups to call about our free, hands on, fun and educational programs, which also support California state curriculum standards.  Custom tours can also be arranged for special groups.
