All reviews nuggets gold museum sovereign hill ticket across the road interesting facts worth a visit on display gift shop interesting place entry ticket guided tour great place to visit coins exhibits information mining video
We took the free guided tour which was excellent. This place has more to offer for adults than the Sovereign Hill. They have meticulously collected samples of gold containing rocks. Very interesting place indeed
Though it is small one it gives lot of information about Ballarat old gold mines and the revolution of the gold mines across Ballarat. It takes less than a hour complete. There are few things kids can enjoy like piano paying, weapons galleries etc
We loved the gold museum which we visited as part of our day at Sovereign Hill.
At the entrance to the displays stands a life size picture of my 3rd great grand uncle who first discovered gold at Warrandyte, which was a special treat.
The gold museum was very interesting and good for children. There are board games out the front and kids booklets. In the museum there are lots of interactive things, such as stepping into a safety cage, playing the piano and looking in the periscope.
