This museum is very interesting and if you like minerals and crystals you will love it! It is not huge so you can make it a quick stop on your way to ialisos. Very informative and educative for kids!

Its a small museum close to the main road of Iallyos where you shall find all kinds of minerals and fossils which were collected by the owner himself. Excellent work and lots of compliments! ☺☺

Little museum filled with crystals and fossils from all over the world. The Greek owner is very passionate about his collection and gave us a "private" tour, as there were no other visitors at the time. Visit in the morning, museum closes at 1pm.
