Perfect trip for the whole family, especially on a rainy day. It's a small museum, but it's interactive and thanks to the fossils and dinosaurs kids will get a kick out of it too.

We visited the Museum in a very hot day. It was an amazing couple of hours where you learn easily a lot about the paleontology of the place. It is very well explained and the children loved it.

Small, yet quite a good collection and reconstruction of items. Very informative ..worth a visit ! They also sell at a very nominal price some natural stones and fossils .
