Národní muzeum
National History Museum, opened 1818

The mineralogical collection is one of the National Museum's oldest collections. Its core was formed at the time of the museum’s foundation by merging several private collections of minerals donated by noble patrons, headed by Count Kaspar Maria von Sternberg. From the historical point of view and with regard to the number of items and specimens, the mineralogical collection is the main collection of the department of minerology and petrology. Over the 200 years of its existence, the collection has expanded from the initial 8,500 pieces to over 100,000 catalogued items.
