Museo Paleontologico, San Pedro

(4.2/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Walk stride-in-stride with prehistoric creatures at Museo Paleontologico. The museum's permanent exhibits boast a collection of more than 20 species of mammal fossils. Housed in a restored 19t- century mansion in the heart of a historic town, the museum was opened in 2003 by a group of amateur paleontologists. The first and most well-known piece of the collection is the fossil of a giant armadillo that had inhabited the area for thousands of years. After studying the various fossils and skeletons, try your hand at paleontology with a simulated excavation.

  • The Museum is small but the space is well used. What I liked the most were the blades with river fish. Nice to visit, and collaborate with their care and maintenance.

  • Hete a crucial point here. You need more physical space to express the great work that makes people search, armor, presentation and attention of locals, students and tourists. With more space, comfort, is could express much more rightly that what already it makes. Very good!!

  • One not be imagine bumping is with a museum paleontology in so good state and so interesting. Such is the case of the of San Pedro. Excellent showrooms, with detailed histories of the fossils. A plus is the cute House that it houses. It is a good recreational and informative visit.

  • He Museum is something boy and not has much to see, it would recommend only if going with guys or if studying something akin to the paleontology. I as I am not related to the topic found me it a little boring.
