  • The museum tour was disappointing not as we expected especially the price was higher than it deserved, and it’s more of shop selling Gold other than “museum “ even it wasn’t that informative.the good ...  more »
  • This is because it's rare to see this type of museum, but it's not very big and it doesn't look good in the original. The whole process also has longing, but they seem to be very hurried to complete the tour and let me leave. Well, it's not too expensive to erosion.

  • interesting something new , we enjoyed the entrance ticket if I remember correctly 18.000 for two people , we where two of us only , we had special time with the women who was like a guide in the museum she showed us everything , even how to make a silver . we looked for some gold peaches in the water with a special colander. fun . in the the end they have shops where they kind of forse you to buy anything just to sell it , we both peace 9f gold 9 grams I think, and then when we come back home we Google the price of the same peace , so we paid double price over there ...
  • Good experience in exploring gold mining and manufacturing process. However, be mentally prepared that they will try to sell you the gold/silver at the end of the tour. Only invest in it if you are familiar with gold market. Buy at your own risk!
  • Nice museum with lots of information about gold and its history. The live brick molding show was excellent
  • My daughter liked panning for gold and taking fun photos. Interesting information on the boards.
  • A bit expensive given the limited content in the exhibit. Only worthwhile part is the silver pour.
