Musee Des Cristaux, Chamonix Reviews - Write a Review

  • 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).

  • Cool place to go on a rainy day

  • Pricey and not a huge collection but there was some nice speciments.

  • A quick diversion from all of the sporting goods stores and cheese restaurants in Chamonix. A relatively small museum, but very relevant to the local geology, with many examples of crystals (lots of beautiful dark purple quartz geodes) that come right from Mont Blanc and the surrounding area, juxtaposed with similar examples from around the world.

  • Nice but small
