Took my 7yo daughter along because she had been studying chinese new year and the dancing dragons and lions. She loved the Sun Loong display! I loved the jade carriage and the beautifully decorated furniture.

I visited this museum many years ago and was impressed, but ... my impression of this last week-end is somewhat different on two grounds in particular ... a - The lighting needs to be reviewed. Most of the exhibits especially in the first hall were...More

This place is a must when in Bendigo. I could spend a whole day getting transported back in history. So informative and engaging.

Such a great visit. I thought $12 was a bit high for an entry price. But where will they get their funding from? So we walked to the entry and met Adrian. What a great guy. He started with the Story of Loong, The Dragon...More

This is the second time we have visited the Museum. The special exhibition on the Chinese who fought in WWI for Australia was very interesting. The display of Dragons is very colourful & like the other artifacts.

The world’s longest imperial dragon, Sun Loong, is undoubtedly the highlight of the museum. Sun Loong is approximately 140 metres long (although his actual length is a secret) and his appearance is the finale of the Bendigo Easter Procession. The museum houses a wide array...More

John Wade 29 has nailed the various prices. It’s actually cheap considering the quality of the attraction. Make sure you pay the fee for the local guide as the experience is so much richer.

You will need to contact the Central Deborah Mine for their price list, as it is not an attraction we manage or own.
