I was expecting it to be a museum which they use to flog you opals at high prices. But actually it was very informative and absolutely no pressure at the end to end....which actually convinced us to buy - we hate being rushed. Recommended.

We visited the Opal Museum based on reviews and so glad that we did. I knew frighteningly little about my birthstone! Not anymore, though. There is a video, maps, posters, charts, and examples were very well-done and very interesting. Then I got to purchase (without...More

No. There's no nearby goldmine. It's in the heart of the city in a strip mall.
