“Just O.K.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

I found it to be just another museum, with just one main attraction - Gold brick creation process! And for this reason I found it a little pricey.

“Interesting building and tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

The Mint is housed in an interesting old colonial building. They give a good talk about gold and the goldfields. You get to see a gold pour, which is a good experience. They don't give free samples but there's a good shop where you can buy some.

“Gold pour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

To witness a gold pour was something different.
The Perth Mint has been one of the most significant mints of Australia for many years

“Worth an hour of your time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

We stopped by here and spent about an hour. The tour was actually very informative and funny, but it was pretty short. The gold pour was actually pretty amazing. The displays themselves were not super exciting, but it is a mint, so we didn't really expect to be wowed. We did enjoy the hour we spent here and felt that it was worth the time and money.
