Dahlonega Gold Museum

Dahlonega Gold Museum Review

Located in the center of the town square, this museum has coins, tools, and several large nuggets on display. Built in 1836, this former courthouse is the oldest public building in the state. If you look closely at the bricks that form the building's foundation, you'll notice a sprinkling of gold dust in their formation. Along with two floors of exhibits, the museum features a high-definition film called America's First Gold Rush. Arrive an hour before closing to be sure and catch the film.
