Railroad and Old West aficionados should make a detour on Hwy 6 to this museum. It re-creates the village of Laws, an important stop on the route of the Slim Princess , a narrow-gauge train that hauled freight and passengers across the Owens Valley for nearly 80 years. You'll see the original 1883 train depot, a post office, a schoolhouse and other rickety old buildings. Many contain funky and eclectic displays (dolls, fire equipment, antique stoves etc) from the pioneer days.
