Dahlonega Gold Museum closed for renovations

The Dahlonega Gold Museum State Historic Site will temporarily close for exhibit renovations beginning immediately.

The new exhibits will focus on three themes: the Dahlonega Gold Rush, the Dahlonega Branch of the Federal Mint, and the Lumpkin County Courthouse. 

The Gold Rush narrative will incorporate Benjamin Parks, the Georgia Land Lottery, the Trail of Tears, and life during the Gold Rush days of Dahlonega. 

The new Dahlonega Mint exhibit will provide insight to the coining process while also displaying the coin and gold collections in an exciting new manner. 

Innovative exhibit designs will allow visitors to experience the history of the Lumpkin County Courthouse while simultaneously preserving it for future generations.

The museum will continue to share the story of America’s first major Gold Rush and rich history of Dahlonega’s story.

The site is expected to re-open in early summer. For more information, visit GaStateParks.org/dahlonegagoldmuseum or call 706-864-2257.
