    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
