    shows well organized into suitable environments, full of interesting material and well exposed, definitely worthy of being expanded exposure with more exhibits. Volunteers motivated and knowledgeable of subject matter!

  • Reopened in February 2017, following Territorial expansion the paleontological museum of Asti has a collection of over 14,000 palaeontological fossil specimens from Asti. The Museum is housed in the "Palazzo del Michelerio", originally a monastery dating from the mid-16th century and currently Houses of Asti's territorial company property. To complete the Museum simply about an hour. The staff inside turns out to be prepared. The current temporary exhibition of the Museum comprises two sections: the first section is in the mezzanine and presents the General paleontology and territorial. In the latter, describes the most important geo-paleontological events the past 25 million years, ranging from the Miocene to the Pliocene epoch, with a rundown on key organisms, especially molluscs, that characterized past environments. The second section exposes the skeletal remains of cetacean fossils of Asti, both baleen whales (whales) that Odontocetes (dolphins), Pliocene era (between 5.3 and 1.8 million years ago) when the entire Po Valley was occupied by the sea.

  • Horrible, the Aquarium is very very small, the staff is not available, the fossils found on the photos there half. The only good thing is the price, but that place is all too

  • Interesting cases and commentary. But I haven't found many fossils of which I saw the pictures, maybe moved to other exhibitions?
