  • Really nice collection of minerals and crystals. They are presented very well and there is a lot of information. Their exhibit of fossils is really innovative and the film really gives it an extra...

  • This was the best museum I’ve ever been to in Lebanon! It was an amazing experience and the minerals were very beautiful! The movie was amazing! And the 3D minerals looked very realistic! The pterodactyl game was very fun to play! And the minerals shop had amazing mineral earrings and rings!
  • I had never visited such a museum before, there are few museums in Beirut. Although, every part of Beirut is a historical museum. I was very impressed with the tour. I shopped at the museum shop. Definitely buy natural stone with very affordable price. You should definitely see it up close. It is also within the university.
