This museum is one of the museums in Madrid that I have found most interesting, the collection of fossils, minerals and rocks from all the Spanish regions that it contains is incredible. It has great historical value. I will definitely go again because going just one day seems insufficient. It is best to go as early as possible to see everything. The museum is free.

Amazing museum in the capital. It is already impressive to see so many varieties of stones, fossils and minerals, but the building in which it is located is even more impressive. The museum is free and I recommend visiting it first thing in the morning and with patience. I also recommend a guided tour if there is availability to better understand the chronology of such presents. Highly recommended.

If you need an explanation about any mercury oxide, ask the crew. Simply wonderful. Don't miss the optical instruments by the entrance...

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.

A speculative 5 stars. Didn't make it before it closed at 14:00 and today is my last day :-( Could well have been one of the best destinations for a good photographic experience to really challenge a good quality camera.

This museum is a must for all those who love geology, rocks, fossils and crystals. The exhibits are well categorised by their chemical formation (silicates, elements, etc) and there are a number of varieties for each rock and crystal. It is worthwhile visit There is also a section showing the various rypes of cuts used in gemstones. In January 2018 there was also a highly interesting section on amber, however I don't know if this is a permanent exhibit. Highly recommended. Entrance is free but a travel document / passport is required.

What a great hidden gem (pun intended) in Madrid.

Free and very extensive rock, gemstone and fossils collection. Will take 1-2 hours. Only spanish descriptions and no audio guides. There isn't AC so I would try to go during cooler time of the day (morning). Not busy. Hidden gem (pun intended)!
