The Albert Kersten Mining and Minerals Museum displays minerals, gems and interesting props regarding mining in Broken Hill and the town's special gift of minerals are displayed.

Learn about the science of crystals, explore the history of our planet in the Time Line Room; find out for yourself how the magic of metallurgy makes mineral processing possible.
