  • For the price it's not too bad if you've nothing better to do. Lasts about 30 minutes if you're lucky, few photo ops but nothing spectacular. I feel they could have put some mini working sluicing machines or pretend mini drill equipment to make this a bit more of an interactive museum for both kids and adults. It's basically just a tour of some facts on the wall, display cabinets with coins and a quick pouring demonstration. Wouldn't go again but for a few ringgit it's something to tick of your trip to Georgetown.
  • If you are interested in the history of gold, all those kinds of stuffs, this might be good, however, in my opinion, the place was ordinary, nothing out there. I would suggest visiting other place, but if you want to buy some gold and/or jewelry, you may find this interesting. Also, don’t forget to compare the gold rates with other places as well.
