  • If you like paleontology, you must visit this place which hosts various fossils of marine specimens that have ever lived in the city. It is a research center that no doubt will bring more wealth to the history of the origin of the world.

  • It is located in a place with an amazing architecture in a perfectly neat House of more than 400 years. The exhibition is very well presented, with the information that you need to know that you are seeing, is made a tour of the region's paleontological history, preferred to go with children, adolescents, and all kinds of public. It is a place small but full of knowledge and fun things.
