An amazing insight into some of the history of the Chinese on the gold fields. The displays are very informative and the dragon is a must see. Also the Chinese garden and the temple not to be missed. A definite must see.

I found the museum to very interesting and to be able to see what life was like for the early Chinese immigrants. I was disappointed with the Chinese Garden and moved on very quickly.

A lovely way to get a better understanding of Australian history. Really enjoyed the museum and really suggest you visit the garden, they are incredibly tranquil and it's feels like an oasis

Found out about Chinese immigration and their culture in Australia. The display is really interesting and there's a little Chinese garden outside which is most pleasant. It probably warrants a couple of hours to view all but one could spend more time. Our child had enough so we moved on.

I work as a volunteer every Wednesday at the Golden Dragon Museum and I am constantly hearing comments such as 'this is amazing', 'I've been to plenty of museums but this is right up there with the best', etc

When we opened the door to enter the museum, the amount of exhibits simply blew us away. Really worth while to catch a glimpse of what the Chinese contributed (and suffered) during the gold mining days and up to the present. So many of the items on display are just exquisite. Thanks.

It was a lovely afternoon in the Yi Yuan Gardens and Kuanb Yin temple. Very beautiful and peaceful, but some of the art work needs restoration and a few more signs explaining what they mean. At the Museum there is a lot of information to take in, so give yourself time to read through everything.
