Angels Museum Foundation is participating in Giving Tuesday!
Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.
The museum is currently partially ADA compliant, and we’re raising funds to bring it into compliance. The museum has recently added a blacksmith shop adjacent to the other three artisan exhibits (woodworking, printing, weaving), showcases various artifacts from the gold rush era, and is one of the few places in California where you can find authentic artifacts from that time period. A favorite activity is the gold panning station just outside the pole barn.
If you’re interested in donating towards this project, please visit our donation page.

In 2020, the Calaveras Community Foundation celebrated their 20th anniversary of supporting the surrounding community and the Angels Camp Museum Foundation is grateful to have been included in this milestone round of funding. Thanks to the $25,000 grant, and the diligent efforts of so many volunteers and others, led by Martin Huberty, Director of the Angels Camp Museum, on April 30, 2022 the community came together for a grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting of the new Frog Jump Exhibit.
The grant went towards redesigning the exhibit inside the main building of the museum and adding a new, interactive outdoor installation that depicts the timeline and milestones of the frog jump from its beginnings with Mark Twain’s tale about the ‘Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County’ to the first Frog jump held down town on Main Street Angels Camp in 1928. The evolution of the celebration eventually found its permanent home at Frogtown in 1937 with a set day that specified the event be held each year on the third weekend of May.
Bria Heintz, the 8-year-old member of the Calaveras Frog Jockeys team and winner of last year’s Frog Jump competition cut the ribbon and kicked of the festivities of the day with a delegation of real frogs escorted by the fairgrounds’ Frogmobile so kids could get back in the jumping groove just in time for the actual competition coming up next week at the Calaveras County Jumping Frog Jubilee! as a preview of the fun to come at the big competition coming up next week!
