I like to add the "Mineralogische Sammlung" of the TU Freiberg located in the Werner-Bau,
which is separate from the terra mineralia:

and the Prague national history museum:

Both exhibitions with really good and much classic material!

I liked the mineral collection in Paris,  l'Université Pierre et Marie Curie


I saw here the best "Bad Ems" Brown pyromorphite I have ever seen!

The most beautiful museums...

Should we make a list of the most beautiful mineralogical museums / museum mines in the world,
where beauty is of course relative, and personal, and quality has nothing to do with size, etc,

Anyway: what museums should be on the "must visit" list?
(in random order | it's not a contest)
