A very interesting museum in Caltanissetta located in Viale della Regione is the Mineralogical and Paleontological Museum of the Sulfur Mine, which houses a rich collection of minerals, around five thousand, from various parts of the world, such as India, Brazil, Peru, Great Britain, Morocco, Tunisia, Russia, and South Africa.

These minerals are of great prestige, and in fact, we find amber, amethyst, gold, diamonds, aquamarine, emeralds, malachite, beryl, and sulfur crystals.

Over the years, the precious museum has received numerous donations, among the most important being a valuable meteorite gifted by the Emperor of Ethiopia.

Furthermore, the museum is enriched with fossils, models, dioramas, miniatures, and artifacts related to the life of the sulfur mines.
