The complex still contains a large amount of equipment related to the development and teaching of mining and extraction techniques. Its well-preserved interiors look (and smell!) much the same as they did in the past, featuring authentic equipment and laboratories.

The Mineralogical Museum holds one of the best collections in the Southern Hemisphere with over 3000 specimens including fossils from New Zealand and abroad.

Guided tours bring this special place to life with captivating stories about the Hauraki area's people and places.
