  • The Museum is not very large. The mining industry had and has great significance for the island. Who has seen the Museum understands then in the grounds out much better what is there available in mineral resources. The films about the miners and their families are particularly impressive. The whole Museum is carefully and lovingly constructed.

  • Nice balance of mineral exhibits (with full descriptions), mining equipment, and stories of the human experience of working the mines. Don't miss the movie of the oral histories. The large exhibit of obsidian is the best I have seen anywhere, and includes a lot of detail on how the "volcanic glass" was cleaved into scrapers and other edged items. Worth a solid hour!
  • Small museum but worth visiting, It won't take long and students pay half price (2€). Interesting and has a great variety of minerals.
  • Very good museum about the geology of the island and the mining industry that is part of its history.
  • Worth the 4 euros, but don't expect too much.
  • Beautiful exhibits of minerals!
