It is 1848 and everyone is rushing to California to search for gold! Get your gold panning tools and rubber boots, we’re going to learn all about how gold was discovered in the American West and just how hard it was to mine. Enjoy storytime at 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. Free for members or with Museum admission. Available while supplies last.
New for this summer: Reenactors will help bring historic Western figures like Annie Oakley, Bill Pickett, Stagecoach Mary and more to life. You can also visit the barkeep at Silver Dollar Saloon to sample some sarsaparilla.
