Systematic mineralogy presents about 400 sorts of minerals divided according to their chemical composition (and internal structures) into the valid classes and departments - natural chemical elements, sulfides, sulfosalts and related compounds, halides, oxides and hydroxides, carbonates, sulfates, molybdates, tungstates, phosphates, arsenates, vanadates, borates, silicates and organic minerals.


Exposition is complemented by interactive components, e. g. Mendeleev's table of chemical elements, lightning minerals under UV light, radioactive and toxic minerals, 3D memory game and planetarium. Also, here is “Geobádateľňa” - a specialized laboratory, given to pre-announced groups of visitors.
