The Brad Golden Museum came into being in 1896 when a German geologist collected several pieces found in the mines in the area. Over the years, the biggest collection of native gold pieces in Europe was gathered at the Brad Golden Museum.
A special attraction for those traveling through the Apuseni Mountains is the Bran mineral collection, known as the "Golden Museum". Over 100 years of existence, more than 2.000 massive gold exhibits have gathered from the deposits of the golden patulater of the Metaliferi Mountains, but also minerals from Romania and abroad.

The Golden Museum is unique in its own way because it houses some of the most spectacular native gold exhibits such as: Dacian flag, golden lizards and a pentagonal crystal, unique in the world. Another important element defining the museum as unique is that none of the exhibits have been processed by a gold master or by a jeweler. 

Through the variety of forms and colors, these minerals delight the eye and create a state of satisfaction for those who wish to broaden the horizon of knowledge of nature in general and the mineral world, especially.

The impressive collection of unique natural “artifacts” takes you to the thought of the already famous gold seekers from Yukon, Alaska, and their golden peptides.
