Interesting. Short narrative on geologic history and formation of opals. Lot of opals jewelry for sale. Short on information, long on sales

The other reviewers are correct: this is a very small museum. It does appear that it’s a way to get folks in. That said, it’s a good place to stop if you are in the market for opals. I went in looking for a gift and appreciated the good service. I am happy with my purchase. Check out other places as well; their prices are similar to others.

This is basically an opal stone store, and they try to attract you to get in there with false advertising and kids-related gimmicks. For instance : a dinosaur-like exhibit. And they advertise that you get a free gift when you visit them, but when you get there, oh surprise they are out of gifts... Don't waste your time

Alex was warm, funny, knowledgeable and helpful. The collection of beautiful opals was only a part of what is available! The store is a collection of the history of opals too. It's a mini museum as well. So shop if you like (I did), but also enjoy the exhibits (I did).

Found a voucher for a free opal so thought we would go and have a look. Wow, how amazing is this place, the museum is so fascinating, I thought I knew about opals, now I do. What a fantastic collection from all the different opal mines in Australia and the world. The shop staff were friendly and I would recommend this as a place to visit, a good price range of opals to purchase for any budget.

Like other reviewers, we too found the coupon for the free opal item and brought all the required documents to the museum. We were also greeted in a friendly manner--until they learned we had come to redeem our coupons. Then, the two staff shared a very "significant" look that could not be missed nor misinterpreted. I've worked in customer service for years, and if I behaved in that manner I'd be written up. You just don't know who you are speaking to or who they know. This business cannot afford to prejudge and dismiss--esp. when the intent of the free gift is clearly to get people into the space! They have many beautiful, beautiful items, and I do think the prices are fair, but the staff need to cut the attitude. If they want to laugh later, fine, but as long as potential customers are around, keep your comments and looks to yourself.

Turned up at 13.00 hrs to be told that two pre booked groups meant that the museum was closed. Told to come back in two hours. We didn’t have that amount of time.
The staff seemed surly and I got the feeling that unless you are there to buy the opals in the shop you are not very welcome. It’s not really a museum but a means to sell opals was the feeling we got

Hi there, I am sorry that you were unable to visit our Museum when you visited. I think the fact that we were booked out with groups for two hours is testament to the fact that we do provide a world class display of opalised fossils and specimens and totally free of charge. If you get the chance we would love to show you through.

Where can you see opalized dinosaurs? Here in downtown Sydney. You will get a quick lesson in the formation and and mining of Opals. They have great exhibits that don’t take long to see.You can see a magnificent collection of opals and settings and get an appreciation for these special gems of Australia. I got a great education there.Thanks!

Glad you enjoyed our exhibit of opalised fossils and specimens. Whilst it is educational and interesting for our visitors, It is also a very important collection for the scientific world who often conduct research. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.

My twin 13 year old sons found a coupon for “free opal” in the book about Sydney that was in our hotel (The Four Seasons). They were super excited to go, learn about gem stones and redeem their coupons. I was also looking forward to going as I intended to buy an opal as a memento from our trip. The fine print said bring a passport and a airline ticket stub from overseas. We gathered the documents and went to the store.

Upon entering the decor made us think that it was friendly, decorated with dinosaurs and “museum” like. Our wonder quickly ceased upon being greeted and treated with rudeness. The man behind the counter asked us what brought us in. I told him and he said that the coupons were meant to bring people in the store to SHOP. I replied to him indicating my intention to shop and to buy. He clearly didn’t believe me or didn’t care. He then said that the coupons were only for adults and he would only give us one free gift - a stick-pin (with a minuscule opal) even though we had 3 coupons, 3 passports and 3 plane tickets. Please note there is NO age limit indicated on the coupon. He tossed the stick-pin across the counter and turned away. I felt bad and my sons felt bad and felt embarrassed. We were treated dismissively and rudely.

Upon leaving we went to a store called Opal Minded who had amazing customer service. They taught us all about the wonderful Australian opals and we happily purchased from them.

They market this place as a museum. Learned very little. Rude staff who didn’t want our business. They were preparing to host a group for a special group. Seemed to not have time for those of us who came to learn (about opals) and buy. Too many other Opal experts in Sydney to put up with their rudeness and shortness they provided to potential customers.

Sorry to hear about your less than satisfactory experience. Rest assured this falls well below our normal attentive and courteous service. I will discuss your comments with our staff. Thank you for taking the trouble to let us know.
