We visited here as part of our Dahlonega value ticket (3 different attractions). We probably wouldn't have otherwise, but we were all glad we did. The movie was well done for this type of attraction, and then the volunteer guide, Anne Armeson, took us around the rest of the museum (I think we were the only ones there). She showed us the gold in the bricks that make up the building and told us about many of the exhibits. When she was telling us about the diving bell, I realized that she was in one of the pictures-- it turns out that she was instrumental in getting it restored and recognized as the unique artifact that it is. Having someone who was such an expert on local history and so interested in it made this experience memorable for us; if you stop in, check to see if she is around, and get her to tell you about the history of her town! We have a teenage son who is not interested in anything, and even he enjoyed this short tour.
