Sunday, May 4, 2014 - 12:00pm

Gold fever is back at OMCA! Enjoy Free First Sunday at OMCA and discover why California is known as the ‘Golden State’, and experience a taste of what life was like during the Gold Rush. Come and try your hand at panning for real gold, Forty-Niner style, in the Museum gardens. Learn how to tell the difference between real gold and fool’s gold, and keep all you find.

No reservations necessary. All ages welcome. OMCA Members are always free.

OMCA Family is made possible by generous support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
