  • Very interesting! Many smaller fossils at the side of the main one, which is a show. Not exactly cheap ($8,000) but then in the guide will explain everything.

  • If you want to do something truly different this is the place, is a single Museum but with much to tell. The girl who gave us the guidance made it in the best way, is not an expert on the subject but note his knowledge and especially boss available. Very good to your curious little and can see a fossil of truth.

  • excellent place but you can see it in less than a hour.
  • Awsome museum with Incredible fossils! A little bit outside of town but definitely a nice ride on a motorcycle or a bicycle. There's also another museum across the street for trilobites.
