  • For 28k the experience was worthy. The staffs were young, energetic. They guuide us all the way through.
  • Feels like a place that dig my money. The exhibits are really old and dusty. You see missing pieces of exhibits in the cabinet. Like a hole there. There's really not much to see. I'd rather walk around the area and look at the old colonial buildings.
  • Fun and educational! Live silver pouring and gold panning is the best of the visit! Great experience! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  • 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
  • Learning about how gold were produce..from mining to accessories.
