The PG Gold Museum was set up by Public Gold, a company that provides a range of integrated gold trading activities. If you’re ever in the neighbourhood and plan to visit the museum, here’s what you can expect from this attraction that’s all about gold.
It’s an educational experience
Guests will be accompanied by a guide who will take them around the museum while explaining the various exhibits on display. Learn how this precious metal is mined and the proper way to invest in it.
Watch cool live demonstrations
I think the coolest part of the museum was the demonstration where they showed us how to make silver bars (due to security reasons gold was not used in the live demonstration). Nevertheless it was still an awesome experience watching the silver bar being made right in front of my very eyes.
Look for your own gold!
Another interactive element of the museum that I personally enjoyed was the area where I could pan for gold. Don’t expect to get a gold nugget, but if you’re lucky you might just walk home with a golden flake just like I did!
Other fun activities
There’s a 3D mural for you to take those candid shots, as well as a gallery showcasing the owner’s private collection of gold items from around the world.
At the end of the tour I was impressed with the entire setup of the PG Gold Museum. There are plenty of opportunities for photo taking, the information can be easily digested, and of course you get to pan for your own gold!
