Musee Des Cristaux, Chamonix Reviews

  • This museum is amazing! Smithsonian quality collection of gems and minerals found in the Alps and throughout the world. Attached to this museum is a mountaineering museum, which teaches all about rock climbing. Watch videos, do an interactive climbing simulation, learn to tie climbing knots with real ropes, try out climbing devices on real granite rocks, see actual climbing shoes used throughout history, feel different types of climbing hand holds, learn how rock climbing routes are rated for difficulty. My 8 and 9 year old boys and I loved these museums. We were amazed that we were almost the only ones there (we were there for 2 hours in peak season) and it only cost about $5 for the 3 of us.

  • A cool place to go when it's raining in the valley. The exposition is really interesting, it contains a pretty good amount of minerals with beautiful colors and shapes. They also explain how, where and when they are formed which creates even more fascination. The exposition about alpinism on the other hand (which will be taken over by other minerals in next months) is quite old but still interesting nonetheless. Count at least 2 hours to go around the full museum.

  • Splendid if you are a love history and gem. Astonishing collections...

  • Not so worthy, if you are not so interested in Crystals,. The trip included a mountaineering experience,. Most of the things were not working. Not so happy about the museum.

  • It would have been a lot better if the explanation was provided in English. It seemed that they explained a lot about the history and how the crystals were made. It's a small museum and the ticket is little bit pricy (5,90euro).
