About
The House of Fossils // Dalberto Pombo Environmental Interpretation Centre (CIADP) resulted of the reconstruction of an old historic building in Vila do Porto. This Centre houses the collections of the naturalist Dalberto Pombo, true pioneer in the study of the geological and biological diversity of Santa Maria and aims to promote the natural heritage in a dynamic and interactive way, with educational and scientific approach. To know more about the marine fossils, unique in the Azores and of international importance, a new space was created in the Centre, the House of Fossils, where the visitor can observe several examples of the naturalist’s collection and of the University of the Azores’ reference collection.

We are two biology teachers, so we are nature nerds. We liked it, but did not take the time to read all the detailed info on the interactive displays on the fossil museum. If you love fossils and geology, this would be your happy place. The collection of biology was not impressive, but we leaned more about the island's history.

Very interresting and educative, well presented items, great for school visitors. Last week the adjacent building about fossiles was open and added to the Centre.
As mentioned by some viewers, young lady from the staff is very friendly and try to give the right answer to any question. On the main Vila do Porto street.
