  • Fun and educational! Live silver pouring and gold panning is the best of the visit! Great experience! 👍👍👍
  • Good experience on how gold is found and produced to b gold bars. The only downside is, it doesn't look like a musuem, more like a bank. There's a Public Bank nearby, so many people think it's associated with the bank. Hard to find parking
  • Visited this museum last month. Got a chance to see how the silver ingot was produced. You will see how the gold was mined and learned a lot about gold products. The best part you can purchase gold products here with no GST
  • U can buy gold for investment here as well. Cheaper than other places.
  • Gold museum, one time vist place. Describing history of gold and process of gold making.
