Pine Mountain Gold Museum

1881 Stockmar Road
Villa Rica, GA 30180


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.

  • A 4,800 square foot museum.
