Museum Reich

der Kristalle

The Museum Reich der Kristalle displays the most outstanding exhibits from the Mineralogische Staatssammlung München, one of Germany’s biggest mineralogical research collections. Within it are many significant pieces that are closely connected to the history of the Bavarian royal dynasty. Of particular interest among the exhibits are gemstones such as the Leuchtenberg emerald and the King Ludwig diamond as well as meteorites from Mars and the Moon, including a 285-kilogramme iron meteorite from Namibia that people are also allowed to touch!
