A must for visiting on your trip to Susanville. The first time I was in the museum was 54 years ago. It was amazing then and is even better now. So much to see and take in. Susanville has a very interesting history. Do yourself a favor and take the time to visit!

Some very knowledgeable docents made for an interesting visit. The museum has some well-done exhibits which should appeal to those interested in local history and some general history.
