Piazza del Popolo -
The Mineralogical Museum was born thanks to the interest of private individuals and offers an excellent selection of minerals from all over the world, but mostly those that are local and national. It is one part of the Parco Museo delle Miniere dell’Amiata and dedicated entirely to mineralogy.
The museum is divided in three rooms and samples are classified according to the geography of their original home with information panels on their composition, the origins of the minerals,
geomorphology of the territory and an explanation of the process of extracting the minerals from Monte Amiata and the surrounding area.
The price of the ticket includes:
• informational material
• guided visit
Notes on activities additional to the visit and booking:
• interactive courses in the museum, for children and families, with sensory tests and group games involving research and identification.
• active visits, visiting the museum and then the mining sites and places characteristic of the area.
More than offering a cultural attraction, the museum, in collaboration with l'Associazione culturale La Piazzoletta, organises events, meetings and interactive outings for educational and social institutions.
