Pine Mountain Gold Museum Mission: To preserve and interpret the unique history of Georgia’s first gold rush while providing nature-based recreation and interactive education.
The gold museum preserves Villa Rica’s rich history of over a hundred years in the gold mining industry. As the museum progressed many locals have brought in memories that have become artifacts displayed for your enjoyment. Most of the exhibits were found right here on Pine Mountain in Villa Rica dating back to the early 1800's and some exhibits date back to 12,000 BC! The museum's state of the art security system protects these precious memories.
