We were so surprised at the extent of information at the museum. So many things to look at . Definitely worth the price of admission & great place to spend an hour or two.

Lots of buildings to explore and treasures to discover. I like the pamphlet guide that gives you a brief history of each building. The gold panning, that is included with the price of entry, is a fun activity to try.

Time to appreciate this random collection is all you need. The collection is huge and needs some serious curation. Spent 4 hours and could have spent another 2 if I did not need coffee (the coffee and cake is great as well). Take the time...More

Great collection of memorabilia of days gone by, not just about the goldmines. Well worth the 2 hour stroll to take in all the museum has to offer. A credit to all the volunteers, they do a magnificent job 7 days a week. Lovely cafe...More
