Experience life underground without leaving the surface.
Explore an entirely unique art gallery and museum with a trip to White’s Mineral Art and Living Mining Museum. Born in Broken Hill in 1943, Bushy White spent 26 years working in the local mines, a tenure that gave him a unique understanding of the magnificent minerals found underground. His fascinating artworks consist of crushing these minerals and applying them to a canvas using several types of glue to depict mining equipment, local historic buildings, landscapes, and more.
White’s mineral paintings are complemented by many rare mining artefacts, underground memorabilia and models of mine sites, making this attraction a great way to interpret mining life without heading underground. Visitors can also watch an informative mining video, and purchase minerals, jewellery and souvenirs.
White’s Mineral Art and Living Mining Museum is located at 1 Allendale St, Broken Hill, NSW.
