It was initially a time filler for us but we were so wrong. The place had so many interesting facts. Lots to learn about the chinese in Bendigo's history. The garden is also so beautiful. Autumn leaves on the trees among the evergreen bamboo is so beautiful. Worth a visit.

My wife and I visited this place during our recent holiday in Bendigo. We walked here from The Quest Central Apartments where we stayed for 2 nights.

This museum opened in 1991, followed by the Yi Yuan Gardens next to it, in 1996. The Guan Yin Temple at the far corner opened in November 1996. In 2010, the Dai Gum San (in Chinese, this translates to Big Golden Mountain) forecourt was completed.

This cluster of attractions became a major tourist attraction in Bendigo. We were impressed by some of the artifacts in the Museum's collection, especially the Jade Carriage, Loong (meaning Dragon), the world's oldest Imperial Dragon and Dai Gum Loong, the world's longest Imperial Dragon.

I thought the museum was ok. Nice and colourful with plenty of history. Loved the garden next to it which is part of the museum.
