Gold Museum in Brad, Hunedoara County, a unique place in Europe
It has happened to me a few times that I have actually passed by some important sights without realizing that they exist there, as happened with the Gold Museum in Brad.
I have passed through Brad many times on my way to other areas or objectives in this county without realizing how beautiful this museum can be.
Until one day when searching on the map I found again the Gold Museum in Brad, I wondered what could be so spectacular here so I noted it on my short list of objectives in Hunedoara county.
It wasn't long before I decided to visit a place in Hunedoara county, so my first stop was this museum.
Being by car the first problem was the parking place, but with a little patience we found a parking place very close to the museum entrance, parking was free.
I was lucky to get in before a group of tourists (there were over 20 people) and I didn't have to stand in line.
The price of a ticket for adults was 25 lei/5euro and I had to pay a fee to be able to take pictures inside, the photo fee was 5 lei/1euro, the schedule when you can visit it is daily between 9-17 hours (the schedule may undergo changes on public holidays).
First of all I would like to tell you that Romania has had some areas (rich in gold) from which precious metals have been extracted for years, here I can bring into discussion especially the Rosia Montana mining operation where huge quantities of gold and other precious metals have been extracted.
The Gold Museum in Brad has more than a century since it opened its doors here can be admired over 2000 exhibits from different corners of the world and especially those from here in Romania, exactly what I wrote above, Romania had gold deposits in very large quantities that have been exploited since Roman times.
The museum is structured in several rooms, in each room are exhibited in specially created places these small jewels from different corners of the world, but also tools that were used to obtain gold from raw material.
If you are passionate about studying these minerals here is the perfect place, moreover, next to each exhibit you will find the name and the country where it was extracted.
I have to admit that my biggest wish when I decided to visit this museum was to see raw gold pyrites and even more what I had never seen before, a gold ingot.
Indeed in this museum I had the opportunity to see gold in different stages, a beautiful experience.
My dear friends our visit to the Gold Museum in Brad has come to an end, I hope I have brought you beautiful images of these minerals and precious metals as you have never seen them before.
