We had asked several months ahead for a docent to be present to guide our group of 30 or so around the Museum, which was a little crowded with our numbers. But the highly-knowledgeable Doug gave a thorough and interesting description of the house itself, and of the mining artifacts in the portion of the house that was converted to a mining museum. If you know little of the mercury-mining history of California, this will inform you - there's even a large lump of cinnabar (mercury ore) to be handed around.
Ample paved parking. Flush toilets. Gift shop with literature for sale. No food, though. All told, a good place to stop if you're in the neighborhood - and a nice plein-air California drive to get here. Hiking trails are available in the nearby mining park at the top of the hill (separate parking). Be careful of deer when passing the reservoir - there's still enough water there for them to drink.
