This is a great stop for families with children or adults visiting the area. While waiting for the mine tour to begin, we mined for gold. We each found 2-3 flakes a piece, which they say is worth anywhere from $.50-$1.00. After mining, we went...More

The place is a little cheesy but the history is really amazing......my sons watch alot of Discovery Channel and the gold shows and this was really amazing history about the gold industry and history. We also saw a bat still hibernating inside the mine.

We have panned before but wanted to do it again. The tour was nice and informative. The young kids loved it. Be sure to wear tennis shoes and a jacket, as it is 60 degrees and wet.

Yes, 2 hours should be fine. You go in and purchase your tickets. The tours leave about every 20 minutes and you can do a little gold panning until they call your tour. Seems like it was only a bout 10-15 minutes. Tour... More

Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson Airport is the nearest. It can take up to two hours with Atlanta traffic if you come directly from the airport.
