I would never had considered to visit the Mim Museum - Mineral Museum if it wasn't for some reviews on tripadvisor. The museum was really nice and the displays were really amazing. I was a time very well spent.

Yes it is in the city center. Right next to the national museum. It takes as long as you want. Some people are done in one hour, some take longer, as with any museum.
