      Hi Paolo

      Apologies, but afraid the museum is still closed and is highly likely will remain so until our 2021 season.

    So sorry to hear that you might not open this year. Can you advise what will happen about the gold panning courses? My husband was so looking forward to his day and opted to leave his booking with you rather than a refund.

      Hi Sharon, All gold panning courses for 2020 have been cancelled due to the uncertainty of COVID, but will be rescheduled in 2021. We will be in touch when these have resumed in 2021.
