Experience Gold Rush History Past and Present

The Victor Lowell Thomas Museum is an original 1899 building that houses two floors of artifacts, books, exhibits and photographs depicting the life in Victor from its beginnings to the heyday of gold mining.

Outside during the sunny summer, you can pan for real gold and gems. The panning trough is open daily from Memorial Day to Labor Day, weather allowing. You can also step into the modern-day era of mining. Take a tour of the real, working gold mine located here in Victor's back yard.

The museum also displays memorabilia once owned by famous journalist, author and world traveler, Lowell Thomas.

Our gift shop offers books, historic maps and postcards, real stone and Victorian jewelry, old-time games and puzzles, gold ore and rocks and minerals.
