Victor Lowell Thomas Museum

The Lowell Thomas Museum is located in nearby Victor and celebrates one of the country’s most revered broadcasters. Thomas made his mark in radio journalism in a career that spanned 50 years and took him throughout the world. The museum is housed in a historic, two-story building filled with artifacts, books, exhibits and photographs that depict life in Victor from its earliest days to the heyday of gold mining.


Victor Lowell Thomas Museum will be open weekends this spring, starting April 1.  Hours will be 10-5 each day.  Beginning May 27, the museum will resume 7 days a week operation.

The new heating system at the museum makes it possible for the museum to be open more during colder weather. The early spring opening of the museum is part of the non-profit’s mission of furthering education about Victor’s history and helping create a more quality destination for visitors to Victor.

The museum houses displays of local mining and pioneering artifacts and photos. Part of the museum is under construction through the end of April and as a result; museum admission will be half the regular price during this time.

The museum’s unique gift shop has been newly arranged and stocked and offers a variety of gifts for Mother’s Day or any day of the year – fine jewelry, Victorian hats, new and used books, and gift certificates good for admission, shopping, and mine tours.
