Loved it, spent over 2hrs in there, was a really interesting place to visit. They had only just finished updating the lights and the crystal pool with the mammoth geod, so it was good timing.

We have spent 2 hours in the museum and shop.
You can see beautiful crystals, coming from all over the world.
Although it's not a natural cave, it's very well done and creates an unique atmosphere.
The staff is also very friendly, and the shop offers reasonable prices.
We warmly recommend to visit it!

My grandchildren really enjoyed their time here. You can wear a miners hat with torch and go downstairs through the man made caves. The gems and crystals are beautifully presented.

The shop has multiple gems, necklaces ear rings etc.

If you haven’t visited it’s worth a visit.

The kids loved this place. The entrance fee included a headlamp and detailed brochure plus we bought two geodes to crack on exit.
The well set out display showcases amazingly beautiful fossils and geodes from around the world. It is fascinating and you are able to touch and photograph the exhibits.
Both our geodes were very different inside when cut open.
There is a great jewellery/gift shop. My son loves his meteorite wrist band!

That meteorite wrist band is very unique. We only have a few beads and our lovely Heidi makes them herself. I am grateful that you appreciate being able to touch our natural crystals and prehistoric fossils, it certainly is unique in the mineralogical world.
