We stopped by here after visiting the Consolidated Gold Mine. Great video plus lots of artifacts. The gold coin collection is a must see.

This is situated in Georgia's oldest courthouse. A small museum that comes with a film about the history of mining in Ga. I recommend seeing this before going on a tour of the Consolidated or Crisson Mines.

The story of gold in Georgia is very well told. Be sure to see the 20-minute film upstairs. Once seeing this exhibit, it enhances the other gold related exhibitions around Dahlonega.
