    A little treasure at two steps from the ballaro market, unfortunately little known by the of Palermo ones and definitely undervalued by the proper authorities. Fortunately outweigh both the beauty and uniqueness of what is preserved and exposed, that the expertise and availability of the Guide.

    The Museum was very well organized, with headlamps that made the environment more interesting and easily understandable. Moreover, the presence of inserts such as "volcano mmachine reproductions of scenes from the life of animals and men in past ages makes it more interesting. Only note to make is the fact that the projections will be visible only on foot because there are chairs in any part of the building. Marco, visitor more than satisfied.

  • My children enjoyed this museum. People are kind and clearly explain fossils and prehistoric rests. Children can even interact by reproducing fossils.
  • Very nice museum, hosting the skeleton of the Sicilian dwarf elephants
  • Only in Palermo there is such a thing. History and culture goes well in a perfect combination.

  • I brought my pupils of primary and third, compared to visits with previous cycles, I found it more rich in exhibits and installations and with truly prepared guides who have managed to totally involved children. Too bad however the location is always that of a building adapted to Museum ... How nice would it be if you restructure and would establish a building or structure that has the "form" of the Museum, as in English-speaking countries!

  • A specialised Museum on Earth Sciences with exceptional and unique fossils in the world. Have a teaching system designed especially for students of all levels (from primary school to University) the staff were friendly and helpful and takes visitors by adapting the language to users that have before. Should be exploited better within the cityscape. A real gem.
