Albert Kersten Mining & Minerals Museum (Geo Centre)



Behind the stone facade of the restored former Bond Store is another of Broken Hills must-see mining museums: The Albert Kersten Mining & Minerals Museum.

The original store was built in 1890 as offices and bond store for the SA Brewing Company. It was later acquired by Seppelt and Sons and used as a warehouse until 1973. The verandah was reconstructed in 1990 based on early photographs and now houses the Mining & Minerals Museum.

This interpretive centre displays information on how the worlds largest deposit of silver, lead and zinc was formed and houses a renowned collection of Broken Hill minerals and the iconic Silver Tree.

Opening times:
10.00am - 4.45pm Mon-Fri
1.00pm - 4.45pm Weekends
