Pine Mountain Gold Museum

I coordinate the field trips for our homeschool group. My youngest son loves gold and anything that is shiny. He asked to go to this museum several times. I am glad that we finally went. It was a lovely place. One of the kids said that it was the best field trip ever! 

 Inside the museum is a Coke display. These volunteers were telling us all about it.
 The kids got to pan for gems.
 They also got to pan for gold. Each child found about 5 tiny gold pieces!
 Madison found a big one!
 Panning for gold is a really hard thing to do. Much harder than one would think!

 All 3 of my kiddos!
