It appears as a cluster of buildings, originally used as a stable for donkeys, housing for the workers, stores for lime and storage for coal, among which ovens for baking limestone that was transformed into quicklime or hydraulic. The mining and lime production plant of Cava Bomba continued until 1974 when, following the discovery of a major deposit of fossils in the quarry, it was decided the transformation into museum of geo-paleontology. The museum was opened to the public in 1987 and over the years has been enriched with new sections and pathways, including outside areas.
