Gold Discovery Centre

Top choice museum in Waihi & Waihi Beach

Waihi’s superb Gold Discovery Centre tells the area’s gold-mining past, present and future through interactive displays, focusing on the personal and poignant to tell interesting stories. Holograms and short movies both feature, drawing visitors in and informing them through entertainment. Good luck in taking on the grizzled miner at ‘virtual’ Two-Up (a gambling game using coins).
