Fodor's Review

Across the Laughlin Bridge, ¼ mile to the north on the Arizona side of the river, the Colorado River Museum displays the rich past of the tristate region where Nevada, Arizona, and California converge. Earnest volunteers guide you through the haphazard array of artifacts from the Mojave Indian tribe and the gold rush era in nearby Oatman. There are also exhibits on the building of Davis Dam, 18th-century explorer Fr. Francisco Garces and the experimental use of camels

in the area by a pre-Civil War U.S. Army. You can also kick back in the museum's video room and watch films of historical highlights.
