Lots to see especially about local native Americans. Place closes at 3 so give yourself time. It took 4 visits before I timed it right. It was worth the wait.

Big building and a lot of displays being restructured. A mild facelift to showcase Yreka's mining era. Also features an outside walk through displays of mining equipment, logging interesting historical equipment.
