“Good, but could have been better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

There are thousands of exhibits, but little labeling in English.

There are a few posters presumably advising how the crystals were formed and where on earth they can be found however none of these are in English - a shame.

“Curiously named museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2011

From the name you would assume that this museum is something to do with the universe.In fact it is a museum of minerologyThere are hundreds of exhibits of different minerals with a minimum of explanation.the building was constructed in the 19th century.It doesnt look as if much was done to the building since it was built.There are a few english descriptions but not many.the displays are very unimginatvely exhibited.The place seems to be in a time warp.Not surprisingly in a vast museum i was often on my own.The entrance fee was low 4Levs but then so was my level of enjoyment.It is located a few hundred yards from the Hilton.
