Jozi’s Story Of Gold

The Johannesburg Gold Rush

Experience a magical trip down memory lane with our heritage tour.

Enter the historical world of Johannesburg’s gold rush and experience a history lesson that you’ll definitely enjoy on our Heritage Tour. Learn how Johannesburg came to be, how gold was discovered on the reef, descend 75 meters underground plus witness the magnificent glow of a live gold pour!

The Heritage Tour

Rich beginnings

We invite you to join Veli, a modern day school boy as he takes the journey of a life time in the company of Joe, a well weathered prospector from the late 1800's. This fascinating introductory movie tells the story about the earliest days of Jozi and the discovery of gold.

Underground Mine tour

Descend into the depths of the earth and discover the riches of South Africa’s history on our underground mine tour. Experience the heart stopping feeling of travelling deep below the surface. Feel the cold air and touch the rough rock that holds the wealth of a nation.

Gold Panning

Search for the elusive specs of gold that hold the promise of wealth the way it used to be done. Pan the mud in freezing cold water by hand and experience the euphoria of finding a shiny spec among the dirt.

Gold Pour

Liquid gold-there's nothing quite like the magnificent glow that emanates from the molten liquid. This is an experience of the heart, soul and mind that you will never forget.

Museum Houses

Mr Ohlthaver's House: If you've ever wondered what it was like to be a mine official in the good old days, here's your chance to join Veli as the dinner guest.
Dowse House. Wander through the corridors with Veli as you learn about home-schooling (without the internet).
Oosthuizen House: A "ghostly" experience awaits you as you stroll down the passages of time, where you will see what it was to 'waste not, want not'.
