Excursion to a mineralogy collection at the National Museum
Mineralogy collection of National Museum is one of the oldest on the world. The basis was built around the time of Museum foundation by merging of different collections donated by aristocrat patrons under the leadership of count Kašpar M. Šternberk. From historical point of view and by the number of items, the mineralogy collection represents the main collection of mineralogy-petrology department. From beginning of 8 500 items the collection has grown in almost 200 years to more than 100 000 registered items today.
This excursion will take around 3 hours. The premises of the collection are not open to public visitors so this is a unique opportunity for visiting such a collection. Around 14 people can take one tour. If there will be higher interest in this excursion, more rounds on different days can be organised.
Fee 10 EUR.
