The are two "museums" in Coober Pedy but they are quite different so you really need to see both. Having said that, we really only say the fossils part of this one which is fantastic. There are several fossiled creastures, opals at various stages of formation, lots of information about how opals are formed and the inland sea. We saw all of this in the free area. If you want to see more, you have to pay for a tour. We arrived at the wrong time for a tour so the operators treated us like a nuisance and didnt even want to tell us when we could come back to do the tour. I am dont know what we missed but the free bit was fastastic and only takes about 20 mins. If you are pushed for time and cash, just pop in a do that bit.
