Mim is a private museum in Lebanon, located on the Saint-Joseph university campus in Beirut. More than 1400 minerals are exhibited there, representing more than 300 different species from over 60 countries.

Mr. Salim Edde has built up this collection since 1997. There you can discover pieces originating from a number of renowned collections --both old and more recent-- as well as from the major mining discoveries of their era. It is now considered to be one of the world's paramount private collections for the variety and quality of its minerals.

A didactic circuit, accompanied by screens showing films and scientific applications of mineralogy, will reveal a world of unsuspected marvels--priceless both from an aesthetic and scientific point of view.
