A few years back the State of Georgia was making some cut-backs. The Museum was part of the impact by lack of funding. So that was when the organization was formed to assist them in this time of need. If you want to assist the Gold Museum in Donations they have a Friends organization that is very busy helping the Museum with much-needed renovations and other expenses.

The museum is housed inside the 1836 Lumpkin County Courthouse, the oldest courthouse in Georgia. Visitors can also explore the courthouse features, including beautiful wooden chapel seats from 1889 and the judge’s chambers. The town of Dahlonega is a popular destination for gold panning, shopping, and sightseeing.
