About the Museum:

Since 1849, nominal discoveries of gold have been reported across Maryland. While the former gold mines are now closed to the public, there is still lots to explore in the area.

Ranger led hikes leave from the Great Falls Tavern Visitor’s Center throughout the year. Choose the gold mine hike or an educational geology hike of the Billy Goat Trail. Canal boat rides are also available from April to October.
