Dated museography, with stuff like mannequins, old clippings & the like, a bit tacky & needs updating. Not very much to see really, a quick visit, mainly sections of tunnels with a few opal seams here & there. Friendly staff is a plus.

The mine and the house are from 1916 and are genuine, you can feel and see the hard work in the place. Too bad it wasn’t for you and didn’t really enjoy it. Thank you for your visit.

Value for money. This is a 1916 mine and shows just how hard it was to get Opal. A self guided tour with a hard hat (which is needed as you hit your head a lot). Really explains how tough it was.

Definitely worth a visit. The gift shop was great value too. An authentic experience. Lots of information and the house was really interesting. We all loved it ranging from 4-42 years of age. Took 45 min to go through. A highlight.

Well worth the time to visit and see how Coober Pedy old timers did there apprenticeship for little gain or big fortunes. Great experience.
