  • Museum of minerals. 5 floor different minerals around the worlds. Gorgeous exposition. A lot to watch. Take a time. There is also souvenir shop. I was hoping to see more different gemstone, but i liked.
  • This is the finest mineralogical museum I have visited in my life. I was overwhelmed by the quantity and quality of the collection. Amazing! 5 stars doesn't do justice to this shrine of mineralogy. Highly recommended!
