  • It is free entry, but it is like shop, exhibition is poor. This place is a shop, but if you will find in your hotel free coupons you will receive a very small gift. 
  • Located upstairs and reached by an escalator, the Opal Museum was a free self-guided introduction to opal formation and mining. One of the salesmen was a former miner and was very informative on the m...  more »
  • Essentially, this shop with show room. You can visit the free show. The workers are friendly. Prices bite.

  • Very diappointing experience. I went in to treat myself to an opal before heading home later today. When I first got inside I presented the gentleman with a voucher for a free opal before making my big purchase. I started looking at the cheaper opaos before moving around to the better quality opal I was after. As I got closer to the dearer opals the gentleman walked towards me and redirected me back to the cheap opals. When I sat down to transfer money over to make my purchase a lady then basically tried to move me on as well. I would suggest that staff should `not treat a book by a cover`. I felt very embarrassed and would never shop there again by choice - nor would I recommend them.
  • There is a small but extremely rare opalized fossil exhibit here. Worth a 30 minute stop if you are nearby. I didn't spend much time looking at the stones that were for sale so I can't speak to them.
  • Lots of opals to choose from plus some history
  • I stumbled upon The National Opal Collection in the heart of Sydney's CBD. It was free -- even more enticing! The store has all sorts of opals: every color, every shape, every settings & every price range! The jeweler seemed to really know what he was talking about. There are also exhibits of the different kinds of opal, how they form etc. with some GORGEOUS samples! This can be a quick stop & it's free! If you especially like rocks/minerals/gems I would stop in just to see the beautiful opal collection.
