The Pine Mountain Gold Museum

We are here to help preserve the rich history of Villa Rica's gold mining industry for over a hundred years. As we have progressed in constructing our beautiful museum, many of our citizens have brought in memories which have become artifacts displayed for your enjoyment. Most of our exhibits were found right here on Pine Mountain in Villa Rica dating back to the early 1800's and some exhibits date back to 12,000 BC!

The museum's state of the art security system protects these precious memories. We invite you to bring the family and enjoy a day in the park, a picnic in our covered pavilion, panning for gold, a tour of the intact ruins of Pine Mountain's gold mines on the mountain and a viewing of the museum exhibits.

The newest addition to the park is our C.P. Huntington train for the Pine Mountain Scenic Railroad. Kids of all ages will enjoy a scenic trek around the mountain on our Golden Nugget engine, touring some of the sites of the gold mining process from the 1800's and riding through some new exhibits.

  • A 4,800 square foot museum.
