  • 1st visit and I did not expect such a wealth of minerals. 3 rooms very well organized to allow everyone to make real discoveries... the drawers under the windows give children (and adults) the elements to understand the pedagogy of this museum. If it was not all inclusive, we can still ask for an explanation to the "master"of the place. " A big thank you

  • We discovered this Museum and the shops. It's a nice place. The Director is giving good information and sharing his experience. Good reception. The stone Exchange, beginning of June is very good. My son was able to meet a very interesting lapidary.

  • Person passionate about stones and who impresses with its collection and their use. Very interesting explanations. It is absolutely necessary to come to his Museum. My 10-year-old daughter loved it.

  • Fascinating site, :)) for all purposes and big, as older youth end up there. The space is very didactic, mischievous and beautiful, without ever being dull. You want more technical details? There are. You don't want? They are not mandatory. In all cases, you'll impress and - if desired - full head also. Finally a presentation clean and without dust which avoids any depression. Finally an enthusiast who puts his speech at the level of its audience. Finally minerals lit correctly, close to you. I recommend you to also have a small magnifying glass in the Pocket, on some of between - them that worth it. Collection beautiful and magnified, a last word: it's in the dark we see best. After the 'Court of Récré' room before the space 'run on the classification of minerals', don't miss under any circumstances the small space everything in the dark, behind his curtain black, lit by black light. All that black will allow you to understand the wonderful unexpected effect of phosphorescent stones. Thanks for this delicious delight for the eyes! The store could be expanded a few books or brochures to start or even further. It's full of beautiful minerals sold at perfectly affordable prices.
