“Its a perfect stopping point for families”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

My family decided to stop in Yreka instead of taking the long trip to Redding, CA . We stayed at the Baymont Inn and Suites Yreka148 Moonlit Oaks Ave, I-5 at Fort Jones Exit, Yreka, CA, US, 96097 (highly recommend this hotel great for families (530) 841-1300). During breakfast the lady at the front desk recommended we got o the Historical Museum. It was so charming my sons really enjoyed themselves. I m glad she suggested it. It is perfect stopping point for families, my boys enjoyed the indoor pool at Baymont Inn and Suites Yreka

“Interesting County”
Reviewed 21 October 2012

Anything to do with the history is interesting to me. Old building, objects, pictures and stories. Displays are done well. Information on Siskiyou county goes well beyond what the Museum has to offer. Old building and stories are all around this area.

“Surprisingly good local museum”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

Small and limited hours, but everything is well displayed. Sections on native Americans from the area, logging, mining and displays of "the good old days". Liked the baskets the best. Who knew they figured out how to make a cap with a bill.

Access to the 2nd floor is steps or a lift (no elevator).

Admission is only a few dollars - and well worth it.

“Very informitive”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

The volunteer at the counter was knowledgeable and very courteous, the exhibits were well laid out and organized, and I was particularly impressed with the display of a complete, real Conestoga wagon.
