  • A large collection of minerals, rocks and minerals. The Museum is not very modern, but informative. Who likes geology-it will be very interesting. There is a shop where you can buy cool stuff and souvenirs, but a little expensive.

  • A remarkable collection of minerals. There is an opportunity to get some cash desks or in store hope. Three floors of exhibits. At the checkout calculation-cash!
