    Micro Museum, which does not deprive the interest about 30 fossils exposed. The person who was in the reception wouldn't let me buy student ticket because I'm 40 years old, even though I'm doing a degree, I'm not considered a student, only up to 25 years, as if my fees were lower. Never more.

    A small museum with a huge wealth in fossil material. The guide is very good and Note-If your passion for explaining. Have fossils collected on shale quarries unique in the world for its dimensions. It was a very interesting and educational visit.

    This is a case of passion of a person who, through your company, decided to bequeath us geological treasure unique and recognized worldwide. The passion with which he conveyed the information during the visit is visible in the glow of their eyes. Trilobites fossils exist in the Museum are the largest in the world and your quality has been recognized by the international scientific community, being a world reference in the field. Not to be missed!

  • Very interesting and for me a surprise! Friendly staff and well prepared! I advise you to visit and then seize the entire serra da Freita, plus the gangways do Paiva, the convent and Museum of Arouca, pardieiros is of course, the food! Good rides!

  • Space with great potential and interpretive museologico but with lousy attendance of who do you think is doing a favor to receive visitors to the Centre.

  • No doubt interesting, but ask 4.00 € per person for the input ... I don't think it makes sense.

  • The privilege of having in Portugal the Museum with the biggest trilobites in the world is a pride. It's a rustic space, with great sympathy of the staff. Well worth to your visit!
