I only went to visit as it was super close to the National Museum but I'm glad I did come along. Seeing some of the most unique gems

When I first went to Mim, I was not expecting much. I did not think that I would be awed by its collection. It is close to the National Museum, but it offers another perspective on Lebanon. The crystals and minerals are beautiful. The gift shop had a lovely range of goods at some reasonable prices. I will definitely be visiting again.

Miles better than I expected. Some of the minerals are magnificent. Worth a few minutes to watch the video too. Friendly staff and we pretty much had the museum to ourselves.

I can't recommend this highly enough it is brilliantly in every aspect. Even if you have no interest in minerals please take the time and ensure you visit the fantastic displays. The lighting and rooms are amazing. The crystals are beautiful and the phosphorescent crystal room s stunning. There were 2 visiting men with children in buggies and I was taken by how entranced they were by the displays. The video fossil film is also excellent. Any age group would be entertained and educated by that. To top it off we watched the crystal hunters film. Breathtaking! I've googled that again since I returned home and friends were amazed by it. The entry fee was quite small too to the museum. Please don't miss out on a great couple of hours.

Really well laid out museum with what seems like thousands of incredibly beautiful minerals. It's hard to believe these all exist naturally. The exhibit gives a good explanation of how they form, where they're located and how they are attained.
