I’m so glad I stopped by at this museum! All the ladies there were helpful and extremely knowledgable about the area and everything within the museum. The displays were well organised with many interesting artefacts from the time the pioneers arrived to more recent history.

This was a good treat for our family. The displays of mining equipment, historic displays, and collections of gems was very interesting, and educational. We were happy with our decision to visit the Indian Valley Museum!
