The concept of an active "living museum" is evidenced by the dozens of different exhibits, events, meetings and functions held at the Plumas County Museum.
It houses an excellent display of baskets, woven by the Mountain Maidu Indians. There are also many pieces of equipment on display, that were used by pioneer's in their endeavors to carve out a life for themselves, in the rugged west.
The Industrial History Wing features Railroads of Plumas County, Gold Mining on the Feather River, and TIMBER!, an exhibit about the lumber industry of the county.
Due to severe budget cuts the Plumas County Museum Association is open Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Call for Sunday hours.
