I know museums should not be magical, but this one was! The beauty in the minerals displayed and the ambience of the set up was fantastic. I went to all the big museums and this one was my favourite.

A treasure, beautifully presented and very well explained. For those who appreciate the seemingly random or crystalline manifestations of geology at its most colored, both for the esthetics and for the science

Who knew rocks could be so varied, so beautiful? Minerals in colors and crystals in shapes of unimaginable contortions. Then there are the fossils. And a recreation of a small pterasoar as well- enhanced by technology, it flies out to you. Wonderful to behold!

I went to this museum as part of a school trip and we were blown away by the beautiful crystals and how they managed to reach Lebanon! Definitely take some pictures and is worth at least an hour of exploring.
