On Monday, June 18, the Dahlonega Gold Museum celebrated its Grand Re-Opening! Friends was able to contribute financially to the initial planning and design of the new exhibits. They also helped restore the museum building. This amazing makeover has been three years in the making and the work has definitely paid off.  

Friends volunteers also helped with setting up new exhibits. The new museum contains all new signage, interactive exhibits, remodeled gift shop and so much more!
