Great museum!
Jul 2021
This museum was in the heart of the Dahlonega square and didn't disappoint. Filled with lots of relics and history about how gold was found, produced and how the natives thrived throughout the years. Gift shop inside with all sorts of neat trinkets.

Worth the Brief Stop

Don't pass up this small but interesting & well-done museum. Our docent was awesome and the short film a must see.

Overpriced for such a small place, but super guides
Jun 2021 • Family
What is there is great. Interesting, guides are knowledgeable and more than happy to talk to you and even talk about a good place to go for lunch! The little film was worth waiting a few minutes to watch. However, it’s so small. By the time we paid for a family of four...just surprised by how small it is, compared to the price.

Explanation and Information
May 2021 • Family
It's a simple museum in the old courthouse, but the rangers are the most knowledgeable about the history and area as you'll find anywhere. The Consolidated Mine was a massive business from what you see today (which isn't covered in the mine tour). Want to try panning for gold? They've got a recommendation where you can go. They also recommend AMICALOLA FALLS (awesome).

Admired from afar
Mar 2021
3/24/21; I viewed this beautiful courthouse/museum from afar. I also read the review from another reviewer saying it was not worth the admission to walk through as there were two rooms and a short video on the history that could be seen on YouTube. I just took some pictures and visited the shops. I am sure the gold history in this area was very interesting.

Dahlonega gold museum
Feb 2021 • Couples
Loved reading about the gold mining history and viewing exhibits in dahlonega. Wasn’t on our list, but the visitor center suggested it. Short film was very informative. We were glad we went.

Good history museum
Dec 2020 • Family
Learned a lot about the history of the area, especially the gold mines and US Mint that was located in the area. Good displays and nice documentary. Be sure to use the restroom at the visitors center beforehand as there is no restroom here.

Worth your time
Dec 2020 • Couples
My wife and I visited during a day trip to Dahlonega from Big Canoe. History of the gold rush in the area is well documented and thorough without the level of overwhelming details that sometimes can plague a museum. The movie, on the second level, is probably the best place to start as it provides an excellent foundation to the rest of the artifacts and chronicles the timeline in an easy to understand manner. The price/value is equitable and definitely worth your time if interested in the history of the area.

This is a state run historic site that features a 20 minute film (good) and a limited number of exhibits. Not exciting but informative. The ranger was very helpful too.
