Gold Rush Program

This program lasts approximately two hours and is designed to meet fourth-grade curriculum standards. Students learn about the California Gold Rush through four docent-led interactive stations and get a chance to experience the thrill of joining the rush and seeking their fortunes. Each student will leave with a better understanding of the Gold Rush and their very own vial of gold!
