PARADISE, Calif. - The Gold Nugget museum has a new temporary home for its historic treasures after the original building burned in the Camp Fire
You can find it at the former ridge transmission shop. The president of the museum, Don Criswell said they're currently working on a plan to develop the metal building on its two and a half-acre lot, and there's a lot to do to preserve the artifacts.
The Gold Nugget parade queen float is stored inside already, alongside some donated treasures.
Museum president Don Criswell says this about the relocation, "We're moving forward that's our motto these days. Paradise, well the ridge it's really not just Paradise, its the ridge museum we like to think that we're the pioneers we are starting over this town in many ways and the museum is part of this startup."
Criswell says they hope to have the building open by spring, and it is only temporary. He says the Gold Nugget Museum will be rebuilt on the original property, but that will take several years.
