Exposition: Treasures of the Earth

The Galerie de minéralogie et de géologie of the Natural History Museum has finally reopened its doors, after 10 years being closed. To celebrate, it presents an exhibition entitled “Trésors de la Terre” (“Treasures of the Earth”), which showcases the new design of the so-called “giant crystals” room. This retrospective also comes back on the development of the mineral world, especially on its diversity of shapes and colours, and on what men and women use it for. A magical place to (re)discover with your family.

“Trésors de la Terre” exhibition, from December 19th 2014 to December 31st 2016.
Open every day, except on Tuesday, from 10am to 5pm.
Closed on December 25th, January 1st and on May 1st.
