Description

Whites Mineral Art And Mining Museum is located in the city Broken Hill. There is no real mine, but the museum has a artificial mine, a walk-in mine replica. Mining related models explain important principles of mining technology, a video on the history of mining in Broken Hill is shown upon request. The other part of the name concerning art refers to the exhibition of crushed mineral collage art works. Rather weird: there is also an extensive collection of handmade dolls and bears.
