I enjoyed the individual mineral displays. Many of which are very large. That said, it is not a very large galleria. It is actually a short visit. Expensive for that.

Full disclosure: we love rocks and gems. So the prospect of a geologic museum in the middle of the beautiful city was a treat. It's small, but has great displays, some really big pieces, and is next to all the other science museums and the...More

When I finally managed to be here during opening hours, I was delighted, éclatée, wowed by the collection, the displays, and the information available. If you have any interest in minerals, geology, the planet, pigments, sculpture, gems or light, you'll find something of interest here....More
