Fascinating marine fossils and well explained
Nov 2019
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.

Most in tact fossil I've ever seen
Sep 2018 • Family
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.

Exposition in emblematic surrounding
Dec 2018 • Family
Interesting exposition of limited size not requiring more than 30 minutes to appreciate while the exposition is housed in a centuries old flour mill which is as interesting to walk in and around of as the paleontology exposition it houses

Dinosaur museum
Jun 2018 • Couples
The museum was interesting with many examples of dinosaurs and fossils. They had a lab where they were making a replica of a turtle of some sort. The guide who was explaining everything was very quick in her speech and not very clear with her English. This made it difficult to follow properly. Very interesting though.

Small museum in a beautiful house
Aug 2016 • Family
The Paleontology Museum is a dependency of the Nacional University and gather a small collection of fossils from the region. The guide explained us about the house: its origin and some generalities about the collection.
Nice visit for a family with kids

Not worth the bother

We were just walking and stumbled upon on this place. Unless you have a strong interest in fossils it's not worth the bother.
