Only some of them are exposed. The museum bears witness to the ancient tradition of gold mining in the Apuseni Mountains. The site does not contain treated gold, but only original pieces of rock, as they were found in the natural state. A very nice guide showed us around the museum.
Very useful if you want to better know about our natural resources (especially gold). Here you find out how rich Romania is. It is our duty to protect and use them properly. Enjoy!
Interesting museum and collection of minerals. Staff speak a small amount of English but fairly easy to navigate around. No parking available but plenty on street. Some really unusual crystal formations on display and a whole display of asbestos types.
