🗣️ Museo Geominero: Meningen
Very interesting collection of fossils and minerals.
Fascinating exhibit for those interested. Wonderful building with a majestic colored glass ceiling.
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.
Very rich exhibit.
If you need an explanation about any mercury oxide, ask the crew. Simply wonderful. Don't miss the optical instruments by the entrance...
Went with 2 nine year olds. We spent an hour there and enjoyed the collection around the border. We learned about the uses of different metals.
I love it
If you like fossils and stones this is your place. Is free and the building is also nice to see.
A beautiful experience with geological time!
Really fun place to go if your into rocks and fossil's, it's huge on the inside
Absolutely amazing collection of minerals, semi-precious stones and fossils!!!!
Very beautiful place. Entrance free of charge. A lot of minerals and fossils. To me it was spectacular experience.
Beautiful - really worth a shot visit. It's right by the foody street of Calle Ponzano and it's free!
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
Amazing space and atrium
Awesome museum!!! Anyone interested in fossils or geology will LOVE this place! And the building is beautiful too
A beautiful museum with a fantastic collection of minerals, fossils and rocks. Your window to earth science history in Madrid. It is free and open to public Monday to Sunday.
Amazing old school geology museum fabulous
Magnificent place! Beautiful setting. Historic, impressive facilities with an amazing, well-organized exposition of rocks and minerals.
Beautiful building, amazing collection of stones and minerals, FREE!
Great architecture and a good exhibits, worth a visit for all the family. Not difficult to get to, but parking can be awkward. Non Spanish nationals, remember to take passport or other ID to get in.
Great old style museum with a fine collection of fossils and minerals from around the world.
Great museum, full of lovely specimens. The architecture of the main room is mind blowing!
Beautiful and informative museum
So many things to see that are unique.
Comprehensive interesting exhibits. Includes thoughtful use of Braille labelling. Architecture and stained glass windows amazing. Requires more than one visit.
Beautiful museum, well organised, for me it's a must see
One of my new favourite places in Madrid. The space is beautiful and the geological collections are something to behold.
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.
Very nice museum. Not to big but a lot to see, especially if you are familiar with the topic. Our 4 years old enjoyed.
I strongly recommend the weekly workshops for family&kids.
Beautiful building with rich and unique collection of minerals and fossils. Part of the mining school. Visited at the occasion of a conference hosted by the IGME.
Amazing building, definitely worth an hour
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.
Very large and interesting collection of rocks, minerals and fossils. Well worth a visit if you have any interest in geology. Best of all it's free.
Worth the trek to see the building let alone the gems. Feels like stepping back in time
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)!
The better geology experience of my life.
Super nice and interesting museum to visit with your kids.
