Great tour of the mines panning for gold was fun. Instruction video how to find your gold in your miners pan. When you get a small of sand the people will help put your gold In a small beaker and show your payload of gold. DON'T GIVE UP YOUR DAY JOB people were friendly answered any questions you had. Well worth the money.

What a great place! The history of the area and the gold rush that occurred in this area is very well portrayed at this site. I would recommend this to anyone who is visiting Dahlonega.

The history at the museum, the antique stores, and the general small-town feel of Dahlonega are hard to beat.... but somehow, the Consolidated Gold Mine did just that! Friendly, helpful staff (ESPECIALLY Doc, Mary and Chris!) and very fair pricing make this one of the best attractions in north Georgia by far. Plan on a couple of hours for the tour, some panning, and being shown what can be created from your finds.

Our extended family outing to the Consolidated Gold Mine was both a lot of fun and educational. We "lucked out " to get CJ as our gold panning assistance and gold mine tour guide. His sense of humor made the experience that much more enjoyable. All six of us, after about 10 minutes, scored some gold from our panning efforts and then enjoyed the 40 minute tour under ground through the mine. Well worth it.
