A brief introduction to gold panning for beginners!

At the Gold Museum’s gold panning basin, our guide will show you how to find gold using a traditional gold pan. While you see and experience how gold stays under the sand at the bottom of the pan, you will hear stories and facts from the goldfields. At the end of the lesson, your gold haul is collected and you’ll be a nugget richer!

Gold panning classes are held at the museum’s indoor gold panning basin, so the programme can be organized regardless of the weather.
