Among the programs developed and staffed by the hundreds of volunteer docents
at the Oakland Museum of California are tours
emphasizing the California Gold Rush - the paintings and photographs from
and about the Gold Rush in the Art Gallery, the tools for mining and miners
in the History Gallery, and the effects of the Gold
Rush on the land and resources of California in the Natural Science Gallery.
The varied Gold Rush programs offered by the Museum may include tours through
one or more of the permanent galleries, performances by musicians or actors
portraying Gold Rush characters, or an opportunity to pan for gold.
