Gold Country Museum

Gold Country Museum

The visitors' tour of the museum begins with an excursion into a replicated hard rock mine. Visitors will also experience a stamp mill and an assayer’s office. It’s here that gold was processed from the raw material removed from the mines. Exhibits of a miner’s cabin and a mining camp saloon where a game of Faro is underway provide glimpses into the lives of miners. Visitors can also pan for gold in the indoor stream or watch a video on Gold Rush history.

We hope you enjoy our work.
