Mineralinos

Do you love learning about and collecting minerals? Are you between 7 and 12 years old? Awesome! Come to our kids club and you’ll meet other young mineral enthusiasts and learn more about minerals and collecting. You’ll have the opportunity to identify your finds in the Voyage of Discovery and discover new minerals. Interested? See below for our schedule. We meet once a month on Mondays at 3.30pm.

The mineralinos are supported by the Friends and Sponsors of TU Bergakademie Freiberg association (VFF).
