We spent about an hour at the historical society museum. There is an excellent collection of Native American basketry, photographs from the area and of people who lived there. I found the Modoc ephemera of particular interest. There is a huge collection of rifles which was not of much interest to me but would be to someone who is interested in rifle history. The volunteers there were wonderful.

I was looking for a particular location near Alturas for some research about airfields during World War 2. The curator at the museum couldn't have been nicer and knowledgeable. She understood exactly what I was looking for. She added some entertaining local color about the site and added her own experience as a teenager visiting the old airfield. We stayed to view the exhibits and were impressed with the rich experiences it related from early days of European contact in northern California. The exhibit describing the Lookout Mt. Lynching was particularly poignant.

We've been in many of these small town museums, and this is one of the best. A lot of interesting items that go beyond just local history. Especially good display of old guns, also American Indian items, and many other things

We've all visited numerous County Historical Museums full of old guns, old clothes, old dolls, and old cooking utensils. The Modoc County Historical Society IS and IS NOT that museum. If old guns, clothes, dolls, and cooking utensils are your thing, you'll love this Museum because it has them in abundance! However, what sets this museum apart from the usual are the mementos of WWI and WWII; antique medical apparatuses and information on local illness outbreaks (like polio); old movie theater advertising slides; artifacts and stories of local outlaws and lynchings; spectacular examples of taxidermy; and outstanding displays of projectile points (otherwise known as "arrow heads and spear heads") and Modoc and Pit River baskets worthy of a big city anthropology museum. This museum is a real treasure.

Any museum with a locomotive next to it calls to us. Stepping inside, it's hard to describe the range and depth of the displays. It covers wildlife, native Americans, pioneers, milestones and missteps in Modoc County's history. The extensive arrowhead collection is incredible! Having worked for a phone company, I was checking out the cordboard on display when I saw the old phone listings that the operator used, and discovered some possible relatives. The curator then looked up the name, and provided us with an obituary of the gentleman so we could continue our own personal history. She said that they were hoping to expand soon, because they ad a lot more artifacts to display. This museum has something for everyone.

We expected this to be a quick visit ... and ended up spending much more time here on an overnight stop in Alturas. Interesting exhibits, including Alturas' history in the California Gold Rush.

Fantastic collection of local history illustrated with military uniforms, pioneer relics, taxidermy, clothing plus a huge collection of firearms. The counter lady was very helpful and knowledgable. And, if you are looking for historical info for the area, they probably have it.
