California State Mining and Mineral Museum Review

Displays on gold-rush history here include a faux hard-rock mine shaft, a miniature stamp mill, and a 13-pound chunk of crystallized gold. In September 2012, thieves stole almost $2 million in gold and jewels; suspects were soon arrested, but only some of the items were recovered.
