Highly recommend
Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. There a lot to look at across different levels from vaults to lookout platform. Will definitely come back to check it out again next time I’m in town

Amazing experience!
The lovely lady that served me was so kind and so helpful (it was her first day on the job, but you wouldn't have been able to tell with her knowledge on the museum). Definitely a must do if you visit Kalgoorlie. I left the museum with so much history on the Goldfields.
