  • Fantastic. Wonderful. Impressive and monumental. I never knew that such a worth seeing place exist in Sydney. This is a museum in a medium sized hall at first floor accessible by escalators where a Jurassic Park is made with prehistoric animals sculptures and true fossils of dinosaur age are exhibited. Adjoining is a Opal Jewellery Showroom exhibiting a grand stock of Opal Jewellery. The jewellery are real art pieces. One must go over to see it.
  • Very nice opal display and comfort museum.
  • Nice place to see Dinosaur exhibits and a chance for visitors to get free Opal gift.
  • Very nice museum. Suggested for kids
  • 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.
