This museum is not one of the most famous ones in Madrid but if you want to spend a great morning among fossils, minerals and a great deal of knowledge I would aim to this one. The amount of material laid out in 4 floors, all covered with natural light from a huge glass roof. It is also very educative... More

If you are interested in geology and minerals then this is a must. Very nice collections in a beautiful building, worth seeing itself. Easy access by metro, situated close to station Rios Rosas. And free of charge!

Huge and well described exhibits (Spanish) Fossils, Minerals, Gems, all in large walk around display cases, is really interesting, great for kids and building itself a knockout.

we have visited a great deal of mineral museums, but this one made the difference! the building itself worths the visit, but the exhibits are real gems as well! especially the meteorites! don't be disappointed by the old fashioned way of the display, it has really interesting things for everyone (dinosaur heads and bones for the young ones, precious stones...

This is a rather large museum showing rocks, minerals, and fossils from around the world. The best part is that this museum is free and the worst part is no information provided in English. Only worth going if this is something you are interested in.

Easily reached by metro to Rios Rosa's, housed in splendid building with stain glass ceilings. And it's free! Seems to be a fave of school groups, there were many students of diff ages there. The displays are only in Spanish but includes country of origin & chemical names. There's many fossils too, with diagrams showing their evolution lines. Pretty neat... More

The Museo Geominero - rocks, fossils and minerals - is one of Spain's least well known museums, but it happens to be one of it's most spectacular ones. It is definitely worth a visit, especially if you feel let down, like me, by the much better known Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales, which is only 700 metres away. And it's... More
