Field Trips
Coca Cola Exhibit

If you are planning for your school, day camp, home school group, or other type of educational field trip, we would love to have you out to visit.  Scheduling should be made in advance to receive this rate and is based on availability, and is based on a minimum of 15 people.

Here is what is included in a group rate and the list of activities:
  • Watch an 18 minute documentary of the history of the gold mining & the property. 
  • Tour the museum. 
  • See a demonstration of the 1858 stamp mill.
  • Pan for gemstones. All guests will end up with a bag of gemstones to take home.  
  • Guided tour of the nature trails, ruins of the old gold mine and the Live Farm Animal Exhibit (weather permitting). 
  • Ride the Pine Mountain Scenic Railroad, which offers a scenic train ride around the mountain, taking in all of the views.
  • Picnic area for you to bring a picnic lunch and/or for your group to gather.
  • You should plan for about 2 ½ – 3 hours for our part, plus the time to eat.


Only $9 per person except the bus driver, who participates at no cost (normally $14-15 per person.) If you choose to exclude the train, the group rate will reduce to $6 per person. In order to assist you with your school group tour, we have compiled the Common Core and Georgia Performance Standards that a trip to our museum could possibly cover. Many items are covered as they are, others simply provide the opportunity to add this. Beside each standard lists the part of the visit that could cover the Standard. These are guides only and not to replace anything provided by the state or your school.
  • Grades K-5
  • Grades 6 - 8
*Note: For school groups of over 100, we also offer a ratio based program to help offset the cost of teachers. Please request when reserving.
