With four floors of fossilised remains, precious stones and almost no tourists, the Geological Museum is a rare gem in itself. The 'scientific earth' room is full of interactive exhibits, including the chance to build your own earthquake-resistant tower. Meanwhile, the amethyst geodes provide the ‘minerals room’ with an ethereal air. With the English-language, amateur-friendly info boards, this is one for geology enthusiasts of all levels.

Don’t miss The dinosaur fossils dating back to the Jurassic period.
Estimated time One to two hours.
English provisions Translations are good and present throughout.
