An absolutely wonderful experience, with an exceptional host / tour guide, Geoff! Lots to learn, videos, books, displays, and hands on experience... And if interested, plenty to consider to buy, no pressure... A truly great afternoon!

One of the most incredible mineral museums I have ever seen, with the most beautiful opals I have ever seen (even being a collector and geologist). The guided tour is also amazing and very informative!

Good display and commentary. Fascinating to watch the opal appear out of the cut ironstone. Worth a visit. We caught a bus from the CBD and asked the driver to drop us at the correct stop.
