Museo Geominero Reviews
Estuvimos en el museo un domingo por la mañana y estaba todo super tranquilo, limpio y ordenado. Nos gustó mucho pero eché de menos la tienda de regalos que o bien estaba cerrada o bien no exisistía..... more »We were in the museum on a Sunday morning and everything was super quiet, clean and tidy. We liked it very much but Missed the gift shop which was either closed or not exisisis... We weren't able to figure it out.
Un sitio recomendable incluso para los que no esten interesados en la temática del museo. Las vidrieras de la Casa Maumejean en la sela principal es impresionante. more »A place recommended even for those who are not interested in the theme of the museum. The stained glass windows of Casa Maumejean on the main sela is impressive.
Free entrance. In the beggining it was looking very poorly, but after passing the doors there were hundreds of minerals on 3floors. Some of them historical with parts of animals. Some simply beautiful. Nothing in English but still very enjoyable. Building from the inside is beautiful. Roof and some of the windows are astounding.
If you like minerals and ancients fossils that is definitely your museum. Mainly focused on minerals, there are plenty of them on different sizes and shapes. The fossils are mostly prehistoric invertebrates and flora. The most of them are in glass cabinets and the bigger ones exposed open where you can touch them. The kids that are studying minerals or like them will have a great time here. As extra, the historic building deserves by itself a visit, that was designed as headquarters for Geological and Mining Institute of Spain. The magnificent open main hall with its three stories is great. You can access each of the floors by various metallic and narrow spiral staircases that carries along to the beginning of the 20th century. In the ground floor the showcases and glass cabinets set up hallways where you can get lost gazing at them.
