Albert Kersten Mining and Minerals Museum (GeoCentre)

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. This museum is not a static collection of rocks but a dynamic and active interpretive centre.

With the many hands-on exhibits, light, sound and movement, visitors can discover some of the beauty and mystery of the world of minerals. Learn about the science of crystals, explore the history of the planet; find out how the 'super giant' ore body formed in Broken Hill.

Uniquely designed cabinets display over 200 choice specimens at a time. Each of these specimens is individually lit so that they may be seen to their best possible advantage.
