About
JURASSICA is a multi-site museum and university institution supported by the Jules Thurmann Foundation. Today, the institution is a Swiss reference in terms of the natural sciences of the Jura arc, whose two poles of excellence are paleontology and botany. Its organization is original in many respects as it includes: • A museum; • A botanical garden, living transplant of its museum spaces; • An auxiliary scientific service in geosciences, an academic label recognized for its contribution to research and teaching; • Satellites, real experimental points on the ground. The heritage of which it has the conservation and the management is also exceptional, in particular by its collections of dinosaur footprints or even its fauna of marine vertebrates of Jurassic.

Walk with the Dinosaurs!

Truly amazing here in The Jurassic republic, truly walk with the dinosaurs. Good food and drinks and nice hotels too! Just three hours from Paris by TGV.

If you are fascinated by fossils then this small museum is well worth a visit. The Jura is well known for its fossils and traces of dinosaurs. Here you can see an amazing collection of beautiful fossils. At the time of our visit there was also an exhibition on migratory birds, in particular the brambling (Fringilla montifringilla- type of finch) which flock to Switzerland every few years. Absolutely first rate. Great photography.

A small but rich museum
Mar 2015 • Family
The permanent collection is well presented and quite interesting. You can get up and close due to the small size of the museum which is none the less attached to a local research facility. The kids also loved the temporary exposition. It's relatively cheap, free for under 16's and 6CHF for adults. If you're in Porrentruy it's worth the visit!
