The Gold Rush Museum IS CLOSED

The Gold Rush Museum is closed, but not for long! We will be reopening in a new location Spring 2015

Don't worry though, the new museum will still have an indoor gold panning stream, a mining tunnel, as well as a bunch of new exhibits that will bring the Gold Rush history of Placer County to life!

The new museum will be located at 601 Lincoln Way in the old Auburn Depot Building downtown.

The Historic Depot, Downtown Auburn. Future home of the Gold Country Museum

This tour is available in winter and early spring.
