Pine Mountain Gold Museum & Scenic Railroad at Stockmar Park
Villa Rica, GA 30180
770-459-8455 | 866-514-6536
Visit Georgia's only gold museum located on the site of an actual gold strike and West Georgia's only authentic 19th century gold stamp mill. The Pine Mountain Gold Museum at Stockmar Park tells the story of the Villa Rica mines through exhibits in the 4,800-square-foot museum and a 20-minute documentary in the 50-seat theater.
Pan for gold and gemstones, take a tour through the intact ruins of Pine Mountain's gold mines, see farm animals, and bring a picnic and walk along the 27-acre park's three miles of trails. The museum is open Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sundays 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., with the last tickets sold at 3:30 p.m daily. Park grounds are open during daylight hours.
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.
