The Aragonite Museum Corund

The Aragonite Museum Corund

Family-friendly attraction / Museum


The museum is closed between 1 November 2022 and 1 May 2023. Visits by appointment only.

The Aragonite Museum is open between 1 May and 1 November. It is located vis-a-vis Melcului Hill, on DN13A, in the former grinding plant.

Aragonite is a crystallized mineral, enriched with carbonated calcium by salty mineral waters.

The museum presents the history and technique of aragonite polishing, an original collection of pieces that were made in the same building, some 100 years ago.

The aragonite objects and artefacts arrived in 1890 at the World Exhibition in Paris (vases, ashtrays, lamps, cups, fruit, etc.).

We look forward to greet you in the first and only museum of its kind in Europe.
