  • 地點不好找,走了一段時間才到,要走到門口才知道要門票,有點傻眼,白走了一趟。找遍整個網頁,都沒看到要門票。 
  • If you are visiting Jiufeng old street then this is not far away stop. The place has poor signage, so its rather confusing for first timer. Its open and free museum except certain attractions. Lots of...  more »
  • Good to learn more about the history and environment. Interesting for people who have never seen a gold mine

  • Nice intro tour by the owner :) & souvenirs. At first I thought this museum old & "forgotten" by visitors, but who knows what's inside. Although it might be boring at first, but this nice guy (who is passionate on preserving family tradition on gold mining) gave us interesting insight on why & how gold is mined and processed. Worth a visit & don't forget to buy souvenirs.
  • Is much better than it looks on the outside. The man running the place was really passionate about the mining history of Taiwan, and gave us a detailed tour, as well as a demo. You learn a lot about gold mining in general, great for people interested in geology. It's only 100 NT to get in, and 80 if you're a student.
  • Great intimiate tour from an ex miner! Abundant samples and relics and demonstrations. Loved it! Do not be fooled by the outside
  • This is the smaller alternative to the other more commercialized gold mine and museum on the East of this place. Worth a visit, but if you're short of time, the "Gold Museum" seems like a better place to go.
  • Pretty interesting place to visit. Nice breakaway from all the shopping and eating.
