Reviewed May 25, 2013

A great little museum that has a stack of absolutely beautiful Chinese artefacts. Astounding the workmanship that has gone into the articles on display. A well laid out museum!

“Fantastic, beautiful and very interesting”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

A regional museum to rival Melbourne's China town collection. Amazing and important regional history of the Chinese immigration and stories into the region. A highlight on any trip to Bendigo.

“Easter at Bendigo and the Golden Dragon Museum!!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Easter 2013 we travelled to Bendigo for the Wonderful Waking of the Dragon Festival and the Gala Parade that finishes with the longest Dragon procession in the Southern Hemisphere!! We have experienced this fantastic Weekend event before, but because it is just so fabulous we keep coming back every few years or so. The Waking of the Dragon happens on Easter Saturday and is a wonderful explosion of colour, noise and esplosions literally...firecrackers!! The following day is the procession that takes about 2 hrs finishing with the Dragon. A wander through the Golden Dragon Museum is a must after the crowds have left. We spent a couple of hours checking out the garden, the temple and the museum, well worth the $9 seniors consession. Bendigo itself is well worth the visit with its beautiful old buildings and colourful heritage. Nicknamed the Golden City, it is a wonderful place to spend a week to explore it's history and culture!!
