Got some interesting view of what was going on with the mining industry in Dahlonega. We learned something new about this old place.

We enjoyed the movie, which was the history of gold mining in the area. Also enjoyed the exhibits. Staff was helpful and informative. Old court house that houses the museum is beautiful and well kept. Do visit the museum before you go to a mine.

Stop by and get the history of the Town and area. The film is short but well worth seeing. Docents are very helpful.

I doubt it because most of the upstairs furniture and draperies are antiques, but you might want to call since they cater to a lot of campers in that area.
