The Bishop Museum and Historical Society was founded to save the Laws Depot, Slim Princess train and ancillary buildings from decay. Since then volunteers, through support of its members, have reached out across the Owens Valley to save these buildings by bring them to the Laws Museum.  The result is an immersive experience where you'll experience the way life was 100 years ago.
