Come have a treasure hunt! Bring your family and friends for a self-guided day of fun while you hunt for treasure on this exciting, interactive adventure. Experience the Alabama Gold Rush of 1830, shop in the general store for provisions, build a cabin out of child-sized faux logs, pan for gold in the sluice, get hands-on experience with daily chores, enjoy music of the time, and more. Don’t forget to weigh your gold, stake your claim and visit Burritt Mansion’s Rock and Minerals exhibit. The blacksmith will work in his shop and demonstrate his skills throughout the day. Bring a picnic and make a day of it. Stop by the Girl Scout table from 11 a.m.–1 p.m. and make a SWAP. The Museum will accept walk-ups that day at regular admission price. Walk-ups will not receive the patch or be covered under the event insurance.
