We drove to this small museum but it was amazing how they displayed their finds of very large marine fossils. The guide has stilted English but we understood that the area is full of fossil finds and is very significant in Colombia

I visited this museum in Villa de Leyva. It is small but very well maintained and run by the Universidad Nacional. Staff was very friendly. Although I got there at almos lunch time when it closes, I had the chance to walk around.

It is only a 20 minute walk from the center of town. Small but very well organized. 6000 COP for adults and 4000 for children. It has a paleogarden in the back very well maintained.

Villa de Leyva boasts some of the most in-tact examples of dinosaur fossils in Colombia. Most notably the Sauropods, that lived in the small seas created as Colombia rose from the ocean. Its a great place to take children and stoke their imaginations.
