Our fourth grade class enjoyed our visit and class with the school Marm. It was great to see what school was like in the late 1800's.

I enjoyed seeing the old school house and photos on the walls of how students used to sit there. The costumed actors during gold rush days events were helpful, and gave a great tour. During our visit they took a photo of me at an...More

My daughter loved it...kids can sit down and draw on a chalk board! It's kind of neat to see how our grandparents/parents schools looked like.

Beautifully restored School House. I entered and watched a group of school children being taught how things were done in school. "Way back Then" A good lesson for them.

It is small but it shows what teachers and students experienced during that time period. Some interesting reading on the rules for students and teachers.

Historical school house with historical desk and individual chalkboards. What most reviews didn't mention is that they sell souvenirs and take donations for them in the back for some items you can take home, such as the rules for teachers and students!

This little school house was cute and informative but it looked like it hadn’t been cleaned or dusted in years! It was dirty! Gross layers of dust and dirt!

The Schoolhouse Museum is a classic. The picture of Abraham Lincoln, flag, the wooden student desks with ink wells. I think they should fix the hand pump outside. The pump would be an interesting addition for authenticity.
