  • Great tour, only $10 per adult, went into a goldmine from the 1800's, panned for gold and saw a stamper battery, historic photos and video, gold mining equipment. Worth the visit
  • Incredibly. One of the best museums ever. Enthusiasts that have brought history back to life. A must visit place in NZ
  • Great experience and great to tour. Nice people doing sights.
  • The tour was interesting and the guides very knowledgeable. Even had a go at gold panning!
  • Really interesting guidance on how to get the gold out of the rock. First time they ran on steam!
