The Silver City Mint and Art Centre is a one stop shop for souvenirs, art and jewellery when visiting Broken Hill. Home to the Worlds Largest Acrylic Canvas Painting, 'Chocolate Factory' and Silversmith on site, it is truly a great escape into the Silver City. *** 2013 Inland Tourism Awards- Tourist Attraction Finalist ***

The big picture was really good and very well set up but the man at the door made it sound like it would take hours to look at, but it doesn’t. The chocolate factory was just a shop, and most of it was stuff for...More

A great way to start your visit to Broken Hill to gain perspective of the outback attractions and the role art and mining plays in their area of Australia.

The art centre is good, I paid to see the painting which took all of 30 seconds so definitely to me not worth it, it cost nearing as much to have a look at the painting as it did to go through 2 museums.

I only wanted to purchase some gifts from the chocolate and fudge shop but it cost $2 just to enter the shop. What a RIP off. Will not recommend this place

The big picture!!! My goodness this is an amazing feat! I was blessed to have this splendid artwork to myself for 10 minutes. I leant on the rail, listening to the soundtrack of birds, feeling utterly immersed in the experience. The “landscaping” around it is...More

Have you ever had to pay to go into a gift shop? Well that's basically what happens at The Mint. You can view the outer shop area but not past a certain point without paying money up front. The silversmith was quite rude and standoffish...More
