The folks running this place are exceptionally nice, very knowledgeable on how to pan for gold. My girlfriend is not big on the panning but she LOVES getting to sift for the gems and menerals in the buckets. It's a win win for us!

This was a pretty cool experience for our 5 and 7 year boys! The JMC offers a discount off the mineral bucket when you purchase the voucher. You will not be disappointed. We have fossils and geodes in our bucket! The gold you find is actually pyrite but still a great time!

Went there with my 12yr. old daughter who was excited at first. Spent about 1 hour before she got bored and gone to another place. This is great entertainment for younger kids

My kids loved this. They are 5 and 7 years old. They keep asking when we can go back. The staff was really friendly and helpful. Plus the town is adorable!

It's just a fun time for our family to spend together. Our seven years old son really enjoyed finding gems and gold.

Perfect for families. Bring lunch and have a picnic after. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and really care about everyone.They assisted me with ideas for my daughters school project when they overheard us coming up with ideas for her Gold Rush assignment. Awesome!

While they say "Mining" in their name and even when I called to confirm this would include a tour of the mine, there is no mine on the property. Now dancing around the semantics of mining being relatively equal to the processing of ore, 99% of the people think mining means the process of unearthing the ore so FALSE ADVERTISING. We did observe some children (with lower expectations) having fun

From Our Editors

There aren’t many ways to relive the California gold rush outside of a time machine. Yet Julian Mining Company recreates that time with its own gemstone and gold mining. Visitors pan for real gold from bags of ore at the site or take a bag home to hunt for gemstones in their bathroom sink. Field trips teach students about the Civil and Revolutionary Wars, farm life, and Native Americans with hands-on lessons. Additionally, cabin rentals give people a chance to escape to the great outdoors in view of the mountains, and in the summer and fall, families can pick fresh, tart raspberries from the bush or pumpkins off the vine.
