Pine Mountain Gold Museum

Pine Mountain Stockmar

We are here to help preserve Villa Rica’s rich history of over a hundred years in the gold mining industry. As we have progressed in constructing our beautiful museum, many of our citizens have brought in memories that 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.

Our Scenic Railroad is traveled by our C.P. Huntington train engine #310, formerly of Rocky Branch Railroad and Zoo Atlanta. 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 and scenery.

Pine Mountain Gold Museum offers:

  • A 4,800 square foot museum.

  • 50-seat theater with an 18-minute documentary of the history of the Villa Rica mines.

  • A covered gold and gemstone panning area.
